9th International Whey Conference

A Better Whey of Life

6th - 9th September 2020 | RDS Dublin, Dublin, Ireland

On behalf of EWPA, ADPI and Elsevier, we regret to announce the cancellation of the 9th International Whey Conference (IWC2020) due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

We have been closely monitoring this unprecedented situation, and having created a programme with a focus on networking and interaction, it has become clear that it is not possible to proceed. 

In what would have been the ninth edition of the conference, we would like to take this opportunity to thank the sponsors, exhibitors, invited speakers and delegates for your support, patience and understanding at this time.

We would also like to express our immense gratitude to the Scientific and Organising committees who have worked relentlessly to create the stimulating programme.   

This decision has not been taken lightly, and while we know that this is disappointing, we hope you can understand that we need to priorities the health and safety of our attendees.

We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you to the next International Whey Conference

The 9th International Whey Conference (IWC2020) is a unique forum which will bring everyone involved in whey processing together from around the world for an interactive dialogue on the most relevant aspects of whey production, processing and applications.

The conference will provide a platform to exchange knowledge and experiences between the whey business community and scientists worldwide. The programme is designed with networking and interaction as a high priority.

The thematic areas for the 9th International Whey Conference (IWC2020) are nutrition, ingredients, markets, technology, sustainability & environment, applications, regulations & policy and communications. The conference has a carefully constructed balance of technical and commercial contributions and will inform scientists of the needs of whey processors and end users, present the latest scientific findings and processing technologies and provide an opportunity for our shared addressing of the challenges facing the whey processing industry. 

The conference will give the new generation of scientists, technologists and engineers involved in whey processing the valuable opportunity to learn about new developments and to contribute their latest research in the form of oral and poster communications. An award will be made available for the best overall early-stage researcher contribution.

The conference Market Place will offer delegates valuable networking opportunities with equipment, technology, software and other solution providers for the whey processing industry.

Delegates of the 9th International Whey Conference (IWC2020) will leave more knowledgeable, connected, enthused and confident in the future of our great whey industry.
