~The Future of the Cultured Meat Market: Cell Culture Technology Opens the Door to the Future

Within the 9th Annual Conference of the Association of Hyperdisciplinarity, March 6-7, 2020 (Friday and Saturday), hosted by Liverness, a panel discussion entitled "The3rd Cellular Agriculture Conference~The Future of the Cultured Meat Market: Cell Culture Technology Opens the Door to the FutureThe "MARUHAN" will be held in the following location.

The 9th Main Conference of the Association of Hyperdifferent Fields WEB:https://hic.lne.st/conference/hic2020/

 Cellular agriculture is a new concept of production in which the cells that make up an organism are cultured outside the organism's body, without raising animals as in the past. Compared to traditional agriculture, cellular agriculture has a smaller environmental impact and is expected to be a sustainable food production method. In addition, the application of cellular agriculture technology has the potential to produce a variety of products in addition to food.
While technological development related to cellular agriculture is accelerating around the world, issues such as guidelines for new entrants, information disclosure and public understanding of the technology, and the creation of rules that address the entire process from production to distribution have emerged that must be resolved if cellular agriculture is to be realized in a manner that benefits society as a whole.
We are holding this conference in the hope that this year will bring another year of layered collaboration to accelerate the development of the new field of cellular agriculture more than ever before.
In this session, we will introduce our efforts in the field of cellular agriculture, including not only cutting-edge research in academia, but also the formation of rules surrounding cellular agriculture and consumer demand perspectives.

We will have a program of discussions among researchers, start-ups, and large companies from a variety of perspectives, not limited to the themes of this session.
Audience members are invited to attend the conference. Please visit the conference website (see below).
