We are glad to pronounce, that our institute, in particular Prof. Erich Leitner, got one of two professorships endowed by the Graz University of Technology and Moni Group. The professorship targets the research of Food Contact Materials as well as the trainig of young talents in business and science.
Erich Leitner gave invited lectures at the Food Safety Summit 2018 in Mumbai, India (26th October) and in Singapore (29th October) on the European perspective on food safety and analytical strategies and on mineral oil contamination in food at the Analytica China in Shanghai (1st November).
Niklas Pontesegger was awarded with the First Year PhD Bursary within the GIRACT European PhD in Flavour Research Programme!
The Giract programme aims to promote flavour research amongst PhD students in Europe, which is supported by seven industry sponsors. Niklas was one of the six selected students from different research institutions from all over Europe. Congratulations Niklas!

Congratulations to Tobias Burger, Irene Dalfen and Tanja Rappitsch!
They just finished their PhD on: Porphyrin-based Metal-Organic Frameworks for Optical Oxygen Sensing (Tobias Burger), Optical Oxygen Sensing with Porous and
Non Porous Matrix Materials: Adapting to New Challenges (Irene Dalfen) and (Aza)-BODIPYs: A Versatile and Flexible Platform for Optical Sensing Materials (Tanja Rappitsch). They did an amazing job - thank you for all the funny moments during the past. We wish you all the best for your future and we hope to see you sometimes again! :)
We will miss you!
After a two-year break due to Covid, the Summer School "Food Science and Culinary Arts - from Field to Meal" took place between July 16th and 26th. The host of the summer program was the California State University, Fresno. During the eleven days, the 13 participants from different countries learned a lot about food production in California.
