h-ALO Training School on Advanced Materials and Sensing Devices toward Integrated Systems for the

Biodiagnostics, food safety and environmental monitoring

CNR-ISNM, with the collaboration of Warrant Hub, is organizing the Training School on "Advanced materials and sensing devices towards integrated systems for biodiagnostics, food safety, and environmental monitoring" in the framework of the EU funded project h-ALO. The event will take place at National Research Council premises in Bologna (Italy) from October 23rd to the 27th, 2023. The event is free of charge, only registration on the event webpage is needed. The h-ALO training school is addressed to researchers, PhDs, master thesis students who want to deepen their knowledge on biosensing systems in the field of biodiagnostic, food safety and environmental monitoring. The school will cover different topics: photonic and electronic sensing systems, smart-system integration, and advanced data management, with special attention to the transfer of the knowledge acquired in h-ALO, a multidisciplinary and research-oriented project. The aim of the training school is to contribute to young researchers' professional development and allow them to familiarize with the developed new tools and solutions proposed. The school will offer frontal lessons given by key-note scientists and European industry leaders, during the morning. In the afternoon, practical activities, round tables and workshops will be organized to share ideas and improve the discussion. A special activity will be held on October 26th: participants will be divided into groups that will compete in the contest "Shape and ground your ideas! What challenges in biodiagnostics and agrifood/environmental monitoring do you think need urgent solutions?" The groups will examine and propose new sensing tools and a special award will be given to the most innovative idea. The school accepts a maximum of 60 participants. More info about registration procedures and school agenda are available at: https://h-alo.eu/h-alo-training-school/ h-ALO PROJECT: The project h-ALO - photonic system for Adaptable muLtiple-analyte monitoring of fOod quality - provides an innovative tool to the agri-food system to keep the European small and medium sized farming/production systems competitive, and strengthen novel ways of food production and processing while minimizing the use of resource and keeping the costs competitive. The h-ALO project started in January 2021, and under the coordination of the National Research Council of Italy (CNR), it has the ambition to empower new farming approaches and strengthen the competitiveness of local food production and retail chains through a new affordable, portable, and broadly adaptable photonic-based analytic tool that allows controlling the quality and safety of products in real-time.

CNR-ISNM, with the collaboration of Warrant Hub, is organizing the Training School on "Advanced Materials and Sensing Devices Towards Integrated Systems for Biodiagnostics, Food Safety and Environmental Monitoring" as part of the EU-funded h-ALO project. The event will be held at the National Research Council headquarters in Bologna, Italy, from Oct. 23 to 27, 2023. The event is free of charge, only registration on the event webpage is required.

The h-ALO training school is aimed at researchers, doctoral students, and master's thesis students who want to deepen their knowledge of systems for biosensing in the fields of biodiagnostics, food safety, and environmental monitoring. The school will cover various topics: photonic and electronic sensing systems, intelligent systems integration and advanced data management, with a focus on the transfer of knowledge gained in h-ALO, a multidisciplinary, research-oriented project. The purpose of the training school is to contribute to the

professional development of young researchers and enable them to familiarize themselves with the newly developed tools and proposed solutions.

 

The school will offer lectures by leading scientists and leaders in European industry during the morning. Practical activities, panel discussions and workshops will be organized in the afternoon to share ideas and deepen discussion. A special activity will be held on October 26: participants will be divided into groups that will compete in the contest "Shape and ground your ideas! What challenges in biodiagnostics and agri-food/environmental monitoring do you think urgently need solutions?" The groups will examine and propose new detection tools, and a special prize will be awarded to the most innovative idea.

 

The school accepts a maximum of 60 participants. More information on registration procedures and the school agenda can be found at: https://h-alo.eu/h-alo-training-school/

 

PROJECT h-ALO:

The h-ALO - photonic system for Adaptable muLtiple-analyte Monitoring of food quality - project provides an innovative tool to the agribusiness system to keep small and medium-sized European agricultural/production systems competitive and strengthen new ways of food production and processing while minimizing resource use and maintaining competitive costs.

The h-ALO project began in January 2021 and, under the coordination of the Italian National Research Council (CNR), has the ambition to enhance new agricultural approaches and strengthen the competitiveness of local food production and retail chains through new accessible methods, portable and widely adaptable photonics-based analytical tool that allows for real-time product quality and safety monitoring.
