Personalised Fabrication of Smart Food Systems

See what’s coming up at the next AIM Conference which will take place in May 2019.

The Active Integrated Matter (AIM) conference series is an opportunity for CSIRO researchers to come together with industry and academia to discuss recent applied scientific advances addressing the challenges of a dramatically changing world. AIM Conferences are used to share research at the interfaces of sciences and technology and identify growing opportunities

Test Bed Vision:

To develop smart “inside-able” materials that are personalised to develop superior health and performance outcomes.

Personalised Fabrication of Smart Food Systems

Can you imagine a future where you wake up feeling your best and ready to tackle the new day knowing that your nutritional needs are met?

Our scientists and engineers at CSIRO are working towards this future where food, nutraceuticals and other products will be personalised based on an individual’s genetic makeup, and a reality where optimum well-being for each person is a reality.

We are building the underpinning science required to:

  • Develop a personalised and instant food processor; providing the smart, structured soft materials (food and cosmetics) on demand and personalised for you on the day.
  • Incorporate sensor technologies that measure food – body and cosmetic – body interactions and couple with personalised genomics and phenotype (lifestyle) data.

This test bed is led by Amy Logan and Nicholas Archer from CSIRO’s Agriculture and Food, and is a collaboration by staff from CSIRO’s Agriculture and FoodData61, and Manufacturing.
