The Department of Food Science at the University of Guelph is hosting a conference on April 22, 2014. The theme of the conference isScience to Policy. We will use as our exploratory case study current policies relating to raw and pasteurized milk.
By engaging a wide spectrum of experts, we will be able to identify and understand how scientific research is, and can be used for better policy-making decisions. We hope the conference will stimulate discussion on the need for a structured and transparent process to ensure that the most reliable scientific knowledge is used to enable governments and other organizations to determine effective policy decisions.
