We are delighted to welcome you to the 69th International Congress of Meat Science and Technology, in Padova, Italy, from the 20th to the 25th of August 2023.

The last ICoMST in Italy was held in Rome in 2002. After a long break of 21 years, Padova is proud to be the host city.

The main theme of the 69th ICoMST is “From Tradition to Green Innovation”. ICoMST hosts several organizations from over 55 countries embodying the collaboration of the brightest minds in meat science, research and innovation. Renowned scientists, researchers, and scholars will present advanced research works, discuss hot topics in the field, exchange ideas and share their experiences on all aspects of Meat Science and Technology.


The Congress will provide to companies new networking and business opportunities, and will ensure maximum exposure among participants, exhibitors and sponsors, giving them the possibility to raise their profile amongst leading meat professionals and companies.

To complement the Scientific programme, the Social programme has been developed to give you an unforgettable taste of Italian history and culture, landscapes (Venice, Verona, Dolomites, Garda lake, etc.), and cuisine. Non-delegates will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful city of Padova, its squares and monuments, the University (est. 1222), the University botanical garden and the 14th-century fresco cycles, both part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. 

We believe that the Padova Congress will be dynamic, informative and memorable for all participants; we surely hope you will feel welcome in Padova and we look forward to personally meeting you throughout the days of the congress.
