Research cooperation with CTR receives Science2Business Award 2017
Smart kitchen appliances
How can foods be processed in the best way possible while retaining the maximum level of healthy content? And how can smart kitchen appliances help to achieve healthy, tasty and fast cooking in the future? These central questions were addressed by economy and science as part of the ‘SensoFood’ research project.
Initiated by Philips Klagenfurt and research partners CTR Carinthian Tech Research, the Medical University of Innsbruck and the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, the multi-disciplinary project team conducted research into how cooking and juicing can be made healthier in the future using integrated smart sensors. The first product developments were already underway and beginning to provide amateur and lay chefs with new possibilities for preparing food in a simple, tasty and above all healthy way.
Further research work was instigated or is currently underway as a result of this cooperation.
