Spurred on by the success of the two national conference at Shoolini University, Solan (HP) during Feb 2016 and March 2017, School of Bioengineering and Food Technology once again wish to create a forum where the best minds across the nation can exchange and share their experiences and innovative practices on various cross functional areas. In this context the overarching role of food requirement of increasing population, food industry need innovative ideas in the field of food processing and preservation as well as intervention of biotechnology and other sciences. The abundant availability of agro raw materials and energy and the integration of knowledge from other scientific disciplines (e.g., engineering, physics, nutrition, toxicology and biotechnology) further boosted the growth of the food and drink industry to a robust industrial sector. The main challenge for the Agro-Food industry in the coming decades is to guarantee the availability of safe and healthy food for a growing global population, against the background of increasing consumer demands, sustainability concerns as well as resource demands for bio-based (non-food) applications. Therefore, considering the need, the university is organizing a national conference open to the researcher and industry professional of all the areas of engineering and technology. This conference will provide a leading forum for sharing the original research contributions and practical development experiences among researchers.
