Masterclasses and workshops

Entrepreneurship Masterclasses

Our monthly Entrepreneurship Masterclasses are delivered by inspirational speakers and open to all staff and students.

Entrepreneurship Masterclasses will take place the first Monday of every month. We have some inspirational speakers lined up including Physicists who have commercialised their research, either applying their know how to industry or starting a business, as well as speakers from the Entrepreneurial community who will be sharing how to develop an entrepreneurial mind-set and the importance of networking with the wider community. All staff and postgraduate students are welcome.

Workshops

Workshops linking the latest understanding in physics to the functionality of ingredients, formulations and food processes.

Researchers working with the Edinburgh Complex Fluids Partnership are excited at the prospect of linking the latest understanding in physics to the functionality of ingredients, formulations and processes used in both kitchen based and large scale food production in a series of workshops.  

Understanding the underlying physical principles relevant to food products will provide useful explanations of observed phenomena and serve as guidelines for those wishing to accelerate food innovation.  We also plan to incorporate this material in cookery and food science courses.  

Festive Crystals - the Science of Fudge and Caramel

The first Physics in Food Workshop, 'Festive Crystals - the Science of Fudge and Caramel', was delivered to the public at The New Town Cookery School, Edinburgh on 4 December 2018.  During this session, Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne and Professor Wilson Poon shared a foodie and physicist’s view of how to make the perfect fudge and caramel. 

We also hope to run a further workshop in May 2019 at other venues around Scotland. More details to follow.
