This CARD Center Meeting was held on December 17, 2014 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). The meeting was held at the Enterprise Works Building in the UIUC Research Park in Champaign. There were 14 presentations made by the faculty of both UIUC and WPI. Also, 12 Student Posters were presented covering many aspects of drying technology and food safety issues related to proper drying.
The meeting was well attended with a total of 44 attendees by both industry and National Laboratories as well as by the universities. The great dialogue led to three companies ultimately joining CARD in 2016.
