Final Symposium 2 RealGuts, a Raak Pro Project

Join us for the final symposium of the Raak Pro 2RealGuts project.

On behalf of all partners, we hope to share with you our results and welcome you on 22 November 2019 in Utrecht.

We'll outline the results of the project and want to illustrate the possibilities and implementation of the newly developed models in food and feed research. This is the perfect starting point to discuss future project developments with you.
