RTP180: Food Science

*IN-PERSON & VIRTUAL* RTP180: Food Science sponsored by RTI International

Innovation. Education. Industry. These are powerful angles—and what Research Triangle Park is known for. At RTP180, speakers from our founding Universities, Park companies and the North Carolina community at-large, are called upon to speak passionately and authentically about what matters to them. The twist? They must do it in 5 minutes or less!

We ask our speakers to be intentional with their 300 seconds up on the virtual stage. What perspective of their industry are they able to share? What are their passions? What would our community be surprised to learn? What case studies in North Carolina are cutting edge?

This month, feed your mind with facts about Food Science. The speakers we’ve invited will give you a taste of their expertise in the areas of food safety and processing, gastronomical psychology, food tech, nutritional science and truffle-sniffing dogs. Get ready to consume a feast of information at this event along with beer from Fullsteam or wine selected by RTP Uncorked if you attend in person.
