Research Seminar Series

Consisting of a series of online seminars, the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science, Research Seminar Series takes place quarterly during the academic year. The purpose of this seminar series is to share details of current research activities taking place across the major research themes underpinning the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science.

Each seminar will focus on a key topic of interest and will feature an academic staff member from the UCD School of Agriculture and Food Science and an external speaker, often an international expert who is a collaborating partner of the school.

The Research Seminar Series is open to all and recordings of each seminar are now available to watch on-demand.

The next Seminar Series will begin on the 17th of April at 1:00 with Professor Saskia Van Ruth. Saskia is new to UCD and over the past two decades her research and teaching in various universities has focused on the integrity in food supply chains, food fraud prevention and food authentication. She worked in this area before at Wageningen University, Wageningen Research, Queen's University Belfast and University College Cork.
