Center for Food Science, Design & Experience
at the Department of Civil Engineering

Aalborg University offers education and research within the fields of natural sciences, social sciences, humanities, technical and health sciences. Aalborg University currently consolidates and further develops its profile as a dynamic and innovative research and educational institution oriented towards the surrounding world. It is characterised by combining a keen engagement in local, regional, and national issues with an active commitment to international collaboration.

The Center for Food Science, Design and Experience forms part of the Department of Civil Engineering at Aalborg University. Through a holistic and human centered approach the center works to continuously improve our physical surroundings focusing on integration of aesthetic, functional and constructional considerations.

In the research center a research group is focusing their work on Architecture + Interior, and here architecture is considered not only about building and construction – architecture is scenery, it is a phenomenon of constant variation that appears in different scales, spanning from urban landscapes over buildings, interior, furniture to product design – and even food. It evolves in time and adapts to changes in human needs. It sets the framework for our being in the world and, as such, the field of architecture holds a responsibility to address societal and environmental issues. Key in the work of the research group is a belief that understanding our architectural historical past is essential for developing the initiatives of tomorrow.

A main research area under the Center for Food Science, Design and Experience is an interdisciplinary study of how the physical surroundings influence the experience of a meal from a public health perspective. Additionally, focus is on the business-oriented research and knowledge transfer within product innovation for SMBs, packaging development, communication etc. focusing on inter- and transdisciplinary collaborations.
