Again in 2022: 11th International Conference “Residues of Food Contact Materials in Food”

For many years, the International Akademie Fresenius Conference “Residues of Food Contact Materials in Food” has been the perfect platform for bringing together the scientific, industrial and regulatory communities. We therefore cordially invite you to this year’s Conference. Plenty of exciting presentations are awaiting you! 

The conference will be taking place once again in 2022: On 5 and 6 October in Dusseldorf. Of course, the health of all our participants is our number one priority. That is why we have strictly limited the number of places this time around.

Should you have missed the opportunity to secure one of our on-site places - or prefer not to travel at this point in time, you can still listen in on our exciting contributions and discussions: Via our Live Stream! In the run-up to the event, we will provide you with your login details which will allow you to participate and put forward all your questions from the location of your choice.

Would you instead prefer to join on-site in Dusseldorf? Then you can find further information here!
