There exists a serious gap between knowledge generated at a university level and implementation in the food industry. The current session aims to help bridge this gap by highlighting the challenges involved in technology transfer, with concrete examples and strategies on how to overcome this issue, under a variety of circumstances. The speakers have been selected based on their successes in executing such transfer projects, and will share their experiences and lessons learned with the audience. Such examples are not only limited to upscaling from academia to industry, but also about downscaling industry-level problems to the university environment to understand the fundamentals of the problems at hand, as well as examples of industry members working closely with their own operations teams and external suppliers, to innovate and industrialize in an accelerated fashion.

Four cases will be presented, moreover, two of the case studies also include information on industrial joint research funding, a concept that is attractive for both universities and industry.

Examples of projects and their execution as well as best practices and methods of assessment will be discussed. The role of industry partners and how they can be included to make these experiences more meaningful will also be explained.
