Participation at the Eating Innovation conference

Conference conveners Dr. Elke Grenzer, Director of Culture of Cities Centre, and Dr. Aruna Antonella Handa, Founder of Alimentary Initiatives, invite abstracts for papers on the research, promotion, distribution, culinary preparation, and business of insects as food.

Interested contributors are invited to propose papers until January 31, to address scientific and social scientific research gaps, public engagement, farming, financing across the non-profit and for-profit sectors, and the business case for emerging industry leaders. “Far too many aspects of this important subject remain unexplored. This conference will address that,” said David Gracer of Small Stock Food Strategies, Rhode Island. Interested contributors may submit their abstracts on the Eating Innovation website at
