Lecture

IA2: The Institute for Agri-Food Research and Innovation

The AgriFood Institute of Aragon (IA2) is a university research structure with mixed funding (UNIZAR-CITA). IA2 originated in response to the joint concerns of a large community of researchers from different areas of the agrofood sciences who wished to join forces in a university research structure that could create new synergies, optimize resources, associate their shared concerns and encourage interdisciplinary collaboration. They desired to create a research environment with ideal conditions to carry out ambitious, highly competitive R&D&I activities of the highest caliber, with the best possible funding and a maximum potential impact on the agrofood sector in the region of Aragon.

IA2 is currently subdivided into 4 Departments: 1) Production of Raw Materials of Vegetable Origin; 2) Production of Raw Materials of Animal Origin; 3) Food Science and Technology; and 4) Agrofood and Natural Resource Economics.  The Departments are the units under which IA2’s personnel (270 researchers) is organized.

Highlighted projects in Food Technology will be presented in this session. These projects are related to emerging food processing and preservation technologies, development of new food packaging, and culinary technology and industrial gastronomy.
