NextGenProteins Conference: Exploring the potential of new protein sources for food and feed


Bremerhaven, Germany

The NextGenProteins Conference: New Proteins – New Food, Feed & Products – New Perspectives will take place on 7th and 8th September 2023, in Bremerhaven, Germany. Online participation is also available.

The H2020-funded project NextGenProteins identified microalgae, single cell protein and insects as three promising sources of alternative proteins that can be produced through innovative and environmentally sustainable bioconversion processes using scarcely used by-products of the food and forest industry. Through collaboration between industry and research, the NextGenProteins project addressed during the four last years, the key barriers that currently prohibit or limit the application of these three alternative proteins. The project demonstrated the suitability and economic viability of the alternative proteins in food and feed value chains and explored their market opportunities with the industry, stakeholders, policymakers and consumers.

The NextGenProteins Conference will provide an overview of current developments in the field of ALTERNATIVE PROTEINS: technologies, raw materials, applications, legal aspects, and consumer acceptance.

  • 7 inspiring Keynotes
  • 15 parallel sessions staging 43 presentations related to the latest Food, Feed and Market & Consumers research results
  • A high-level Roundtable on “How can alternative proteins contribute to the future of food?”
  • Poster session
