Welcome to the ReThink Eating 2022 Conference
This is not a traditional conference. We want to invite researchers from different backgrounds and disciplines to come together and brainstorm the future of eating in new, unorthodox ways. The COVID pandemic has highlighted the importance of the chemical senses, and the drive towards green transition has underlined the need to change people’s dietary habits. In these times of increasing digitalisation of the audiovisual senses, there is a risk that smell and taste will be left behind.
It is clearer than ever before that we need to rethink the future of chemical senses research. What and where are the new research areas and methods?
You are invited to join us in coming up with daring and creative solutions, and we want to hear your questions around pressing issues. In these increasingly serious times, we welcome the weird, wacky, and wonderful. Maybe even a sprinkling of magic.
We aim to address far-reaching questions like:
