2021 NFHB Forum Presenters

Valuable updates and novel findings will be shared during this dynamic two-day virtual event. Kicking off with a Plenary Session and then focusing in on research areas, the presentation sessions offer time for live Q&A with key experts. You'll also have access to a full on-demand catalogue of recorded poster presentations covering the latest project progress along with simulated Poster Author Sessions for the chance to follow up with poster authors in interactive discussions. Wrapping up the event join in a virtual tour of RAHR's malting production and technical center as well as the Luce Line Brewing Co. Test your FHB knowledge and plan to stay after the tour to reconnect with your colleagues in a fun FHB Trivia networking session. >> Check out all the details for the 2021 NFHB Forum Program!
