Build alternative protein sessions into scientific conferences
Elevating the visibility and credibility of the field at scientific conferences will expand the technical talent pipeline and amplify collaboration and funding efforts.
- 2 – Early adoption
While dozens of scientific disciplines have direct relevance to alternative proteins, sessions dedicated to this topic are almost entirely absent from mainstream scientific conferences. Elevating the visibility and credibility of the field at these venues will expand the technical talent pipeline and amplify collaboration and funding efforts. Many scientific conferences accept session proposals with suggestions for proposed speakers. Systematic introduction of alternative protein content can start with developing a curated list of the most prestigious conferences for each relevant field that accept session proposals.
