Teagasc and its research partners (UCD, UCC, UG, and UL), funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and in association with the EFSA funded Partnering Grant, ListeriaPredict, are organizing the 2023 Symposium on Listeria monocytogenes in Foods: Recent Advances and Outstanding Questions. This 2-day symposium will take place from 24-25 May 2023 at Teagasc Food Research Centre – Ashtown in Dublin, Ireland.

The aim of this symposium is to bring together researchers interested in all aspects of Listeria monocytogenes in foods to share their latest results, develop new collaborations and reinvigorate networks. Themes will include stress response and virulence, persistence in the food processing environment, predictive modelling in food systems as well as updates from regulatory agencies and other stakeholders.
