Welcome to the Smart Foods Centre
The Smart Foods Centre was originally established in 1999 as an ARC Key Centre for Teaching and Research, and from 2007 has continued to be a University of Wollongong research initiative within the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health.
We provide a rich environment for research at the professional, graduate student and post doctorate level. Academic staff support the teaching of research methodology in the School of Health Sciences and help build the PhD student base.
The Centre conducts research funded through the National Competitive Grants Scheme, with outcomes and impact factors that fit within the UOW strategic plan. The Centre also supports its research funding through commercially funded research projects for companies within the Australian food and beverage industry.
