Multifunctional Active Edible Coatings for Perishable Fruits

Luana Carnaval (PhD Researcher, Technological University Dublin)
Food-borne illnesses and food waste/loss present significant challenges to the food industry, society, and the economy. Edible coatings offer an environmental-friendly packaging solution that can protect food from microorganisms, extend shelf life, prevent oxidation and spoilage, besides maintain quality and freshness through active properties.

Why we often make bad decisions and how to make better ones using insights from behavioural economics

Emma Howard (Lecturer, Technological University Dublin)
Choices are usually personal, yet we don’t always make decisions in our own best interest. Fortunately, understanding common biases in decision making and how we evaluate risk can help us make better choices.
