The course is focused on covering fundamental and applied advances in the fields of colloidal chemistry and carriers for enzymes. It will include bioformulations (hydrogels, surfactant-lipid phases), colloidal systems templating porous materials, spectroscopic techniques for biomolecular structure and stability, lipid phases and enzymology and industrial views on use and delivery of enzymes. The course is linked to development of entrepreneurial skills, managed by invited speakers from companies - one topic will be follow-up on the business canvas adding intellectual property rights and capital to the picture. The course will encompass lab training in Raman spectroscopy.

Learning Outcome

The aim of the course is to provide young researchers with tools to develop novel functional foods by use of colloidal delivery systems.

Registered participants will receive a list of literature (books, scientific papers) to be read before the course starts. Participants will also receive guidelines on how to complete the final written report.

The course is mandatory for all BIBAFOODS fellows, but it is open to other PhD students, post docs and young researchers.
A basic knowledge of food chemistry and enzymes is strongly recommended.
The course will consist of a mixture of lectures, practicals, discussion sessions and an excursion.
Credit
3 ECTS
Type of assessment
