Teagasc will host the International Congress of Meat Science and Technology (ICoMST), in collaboration with University College Cork. This prestigious global Congress will be held in the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork, from August 13-18, 2017. ICoMST reconvenes in Ireland after an 11- year absence.

It’s the 63rd ICoMST and the theme this year is: ‘Nurturing locally, growing globally’. The Congress will look at how science can offer the meat production and processing sector solutions to enable it to nurture sustainably at local level while offering opportunities to grow globally. Almost 500 short papers have been submitted and the Congress will offer great networking opportunities for delegates from the food industry, academia and policy organisations, from around the world.

The ICoMST Organising Committee is chaired by Declan Troy, Teagasc, and co-chaired by Joe Kerry, University College Cork. Declan Troy says: “It promises to be a most rewarding experience with an effective exchange of information and ideas on important topics in the world of meat science and technology. Over 5 days, there will be sessions on themes such as genomics, animal welfare, meat processing, meat safety, consumer aspects and the health aspects of meat.”

Various exceptional keynote speakers have been confirmed including Professor Frank Rijsberman of the Global Green Growth Institute, Professor Temple Grandin of Colorado State University, and Donagh Berry, Senior Principal Research Officer in Teagasc.

Declan Troy adds: “The Congress aims to provide a dynamic interface between academic research and innovative applications, and represents an important opportunity for everyone in the field of meat science. I expect dialogue between researchers and industry, which will continue throughout and beyond this meeting.”

The Organising Committee is delighted to partner with our sponsors, Kerry Group, Teagasc, ABP Food Group, Meat Technology Ireland, Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Kepak, Enterprise Ireland,PIC, Stable Micro Systems, Niacet and University College Dublin.
