Participate either physically or virtually - Creative Tastebuds introduces a hybrid conference

We are proud to have put effort, thought and sweat into planning a hybrid version of Creative Tastebuds that makes it possible for everyone - national and international participants - to join and experience two spectacular days of reflecting, interacting, and producing knowledge together. We are working together with tech professionals to make the virtual experience just as spectacular and professional as the physical. We promise you that this symposium is not another zoom-meeting. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the virtual set-up and/or experience at Creative Tastebuds 2021 - please contact our symposium secretary, Nanna

Art, science, innovation and gastronomy meet in an interdisciplinary symposium

In a time of climate crisis and increasing global inequality afflicted by hunger and obesity, we are urged to downsize individual pleasures for the sake of our common future on earth.

How can we use our sense of taste to make new and better choices? And can we rely on taste to guide us well?

Read more about the concept for CT2021

"A triumph! A totally RETHINK project. Stimulating, thought provoking and subject enlarging. I hope Tastebuds might convert to an annual conference in which we see all matters of food taste, from science to aesthetics, and in between, on the menu and generating in the next generation of makers, thinkers and researchers, the desire to go deeper into food knowledge to improve our relationship to healthy, sustainable and good eating."
