The 7th and 8th of April 2016 saw our University staff greeting the NUFT honorary doctor, a well-known acknowledged scientist, Prof. Dr. Huub Lelieveld.
The 7th and 8th of April 2016 saw our University staff greeting the NUFT honorary doctor, a well-known acknowledged scientist, Prof. Dr. Huub Lelieveld. Prof. Lelieveld had been previously announced to have kindly offered to hold two public lectures for students and professors of the University on the following topics:
The title of the first lecture was «The use of the newest methods for storage, processing and preparation of food» (method of pulsating electric fields (PEF) and the method of ultrahigh pressure).
The topic of the second lecture was «The hygienic aspects of design and construction of food enterprises» (the choice of an optimal platform, sanitary equipment, sanitation, etc.).
It should be mentioned that nowadays these issues are the most crucial and urgent ones within the food technology field.
As far as the first lecture is concerned it should be pointed out that the discussed issues therein are not properly covered or covered only briefly at our University. And as for the topic of the second lecture, its exceptional role in the process of our students and professors’ acquaintance with the latest achievements of modern European science and technology is obvious.
In course of his presentation Prof. Lelieveld considered in detail the history of the technologies in question, the current situation in the field, as well as familiarized the audience with the relative equipment which is used in Europe.
The data regarding the mechanism of influence of both PEF method and ultrahigh pressure on undesirable microorganisms and, what is most interesting, the cell membranes, provided by our honorary lecturer was of particular interest. The illustration the use of PEF method to increase the yield of extracted substances from material after the application thereof drew the audience interest. The illustrations of the use of PEF technology for the direct cooking were even more exciting. Thus, the possibility to prepare roast beef within a few seconds seems to be fantastic.
Without doubt, the presentation regarding the hygienic aspects of food products will be useful for our students and professionals, as the EU ideology is known to have a priority in ensuring food security through prior respect for the highest standards of hygiene.
Enjoying the opportunity of his visit to the NUFT Professor Dr. Huub Lelieveld as the EFFoST Directorate member highly appreciated the state of University readiness to host the CEFood 2016 Congress and noted that it does not constitute any causes of concern.
In addition he undertook to promote the dissemination of information among his European colleagues to expand the range of CEFood 2016 Congress delegates.
Professor Dr. Huub Lelieveld met with the University’s rector Anatoliy Ukrayinets. During the meeting they discussed plans and prospects of the NUFT cooperation with the European associations as well as outlined the ways of its further integration in the scientific and educational sphere.
Academic mobility Tomas Bata University (Zlin, Czech Republic)
Another stage of the academic mobility program within the framework of agreement between the National University of Food Technologies and the Tomas Bata University (Zlin, Czech Republic) is in progress.
