Dear colleagues,

With great pleasure we announce the upcoming Food System Microbiomes 2024 International Conference! This new conference will address microbiomes across the food system and will take place in beautiful Torino, Italy, from 14-17 May 2024.

There is increasing interest in food system’s microbiomes. Microbiomes are highly important to achieve sustainable primary production, to increase food quality and safety, to maintain food production and ultimately, they are of key relevance for human and animal health. In this conference we will discuss the role of food system’s microbiomes for burning issues like the fertilizer crisis, animal welfare, antibiotic resistance, food quality, circularity and dietary transition. We will address latest findings, important aspects for new innovations and will also identify knowledge gaps to be further addressed.

The Food System Microbiomes 2024 International Conference is organized as part of the newly founded MicrobiomeSupport Association, a follow-up of the Coordination and Support Action MicrobiomeSupport. We aim to further increase the awareness of food system microbiomes across different stakeholder groups, and this scientific conference is one of the planned activities of the new association.

The conference will take place in the Cavallerizza Reale of the University of Torino, right in the charming, old city center. Torino is surrounded by a beautiful landscape, the Alps and the Piemont region. We invite you to present exciting results, engage in discussions with experts from academia and industry and enjoy the historic and cultural sites of Torino

Looking forward to meeting you in Torino at the Food System Microbiomes 2024 International Conference!
