Visit The Carling Partnership At The Young Scientists Symposium 2014

The Young Scientists Symposium 2014 logoThe Young Scientists Symposium 2014 will take place in Ghent in Belgium between the 28th and the 30th of October at the KU Leuven Technology Campus (KAHO Sint-Lieven). This campus is located in the historical city of Ghent and is the perfect place to discover the richness of the beer and distilling culture that this country has to offer. The symposium is the perfect platform to exchange knowledge and ideas on malting, brewing and distilling with industry fellows from around the globe.

The Carling Partnership is delighted to announce that Bill Carling will attend this prestigious Malting, Brewing and Distilling event. A joint effort by the University of Leuven and the Young Scientist Symposium Organizing Committee, the International Young Scientists Symposium on Malting, Brewing and Distilling is now in it’s 4th year. A gathering of industry professionals, with a focus on the under 35’s, this is a great opportunity to exchange knowledge, discover innovative techniques and make contacts from around the world.

Designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the very latest research and development in biology, chemistry, sensory science, engineering and other associated areas in malting, brewing and distilling, this event is truly brimming with innovation. As such, it provides a fantastic occasion for industry participants to identify talented individuals who represent the future of the malting, brewing and distilling industry.

The packed 3-day programme includes a host of lectures and presentations and will give participants the chance to focus in on their particular area of interest. With representations from the Technische Universitat Munchen; Technische Universitat Berlin, University College Cork, The University of Nottingham and The Federal University of Minas Gerais in Brazil, the event has a truly international flavour to it.

Lectures topics cover everything from the innovative use of additives in lagers and ales, to new storage and distribution techniques, to guided tours, so in short, promises to have something for everyone. In our experience at The Carling Partnership, this type of event not only helps us keep our fingers firmly on the pulse of what’s happening in the brewing and distilling world, it’s a great opportunity to meet with the people in the front line of our exciting industry. We find that these events always give us the chance to meet with industry movers and shakers as well as students and novices who are looking to further their career opportunities by staying up to date with developments.

We can say with confidence that we are looking forward to this event and to meeting the brewers and distillers of today and tomorrow.
