European Society for Agricultural and Food Ethics

27-290515, University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Cluj-Napoca, Romania

The conference intends to highlight the prospects and limits of scientific knowledge and philosophical argument – and their mutual interaction – in the food area.

When consider food ethics, who is an expert in food ethics? In many ways we all have many capacities as consumers, scientific experts, reflective ethicists, and citizens. Society needs all actors to collaborate in this field.

In terms of innovation in food, should we be concerned or should we put our hopes in the innovation process in the food sector? At this conference, multiple ethical dimensions of innovation will be raised: from food technologies to production and management practices, to institutional framework and governance.
