Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The SGR was born with the aim of generating innovative food processing technologies and groundbreaking scientific knowledge in the area of agri-food, specifically in the field of Food
Science and Technology. The objective for the next 3 years is to boost the optimization of food
manufacturing processes by means of innovation and development of specific (ad hoc) optical
sensors for monitoring and controlling processes that enable the automation of key stages of
food processing not yet automated. The development of such type of sensors allows to increase
the capacity for the exploitation of unique optical information, spectral in nature and inline,
which can be combined with data related to processing, composition, and raw materials. Such
approach can generate huge amounts of data, opening the door to big data and artificial
intelligence, in the frame of the industry 4.0, clearly aligned with the 2030 AGENDA, for the
maximum extraction of information on critical processing stages.
