English summary of Irena Šoljić's interview for Foodgalaxy.org
(Recorded at the EFFoST Annual Conference 2010 Dublin)

Irena Šoljić is a student of the last year of Food safety management graduate studies at Faculty of Food technology and biotechnology, University of Zagreb. She found out about the Faculty through word of mouth from her acquaintances. They had only the best to say about studying there. Since she was amused by nutrition science and food technology, this was her logical and first choice. She thinks that there are tremendous opportunities to implement innovations in this area of applied sciences, and that ambitious well—organized students visiting professional conferences are a proof of the possibilities that our industry offers.

Irena Šoljić je studentica zadnje godine Upravljanja sigurnošću hrane pri Prehrambeno-biotehnološkom Fakultetu na Sveučilištu u Zagrebu. Saznala je za Fakultet usmenom predajom od raznih poznanika koji su studirali tamo. Za Fakultet su imali isključivo riječi hvale. S obzirom da je zanimala ljudska prehrana i prehrambena tehnologija, ovaj Fakultet je bio prvi i logičan izbor. Smatra da postoje velike prilike za implementaciju inovacija u našoj grani primjenjene znanosti te da su ambiciozni i dobro organizirani studenti na profesionalnim konferencijama dokaz o mogućnosti razvoja koje pruža naša industridja.

2) Prof. Kata Galić

This interview was recorded in November 2010 at the 2010 EFFoST Annual Meeting in Dublin, Ireland.
 

Summary of Kata Galić's interview for Foodgalaxy.org
(Recorded at the EFFoST Annual Conference 2010 Dublin)

Kata Galić is professor at the University of Zagreb, Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology, in the Laboratory for food packaging. Her decision to select food technology as her occupation is dating from time when she was in the secondary Pharmaceutical school, and her fond for chemistry-which makes a great deal of food technology study. Professor Galić says that she is, and even today, pleased with her decision. Food technology, as any other sector, is facing its progress. However, advances in innovations at scientific institution, is unfortunately dependent on financial resources of the institution. For the young colleagues, showing interest in food technology or nutrition, my recommendation is to select it. There is obvious interest, in Croatia and worldwide, in the field of functional food as well as solving the problem of proper nutrition. Thus it is not surprising that young people show their interest in these areas of studies.
 


Sažetak intervjua profesoricom Kata Galić za Foodgalaxy.org (Summary of the interview in Croatian language)
(Snimljeno na EFFOST godišnjoj konferenciji 2012 Dublin)

Kata Galić je profesorica na Sveučilištu u Zagrebu, Prehrambeno-biotehnološkom fakultetu u Laboratoriju za pakiranje hrane. Odluka za odabir prehrambene tehnologije kao svog poziva datira još iz srednje Farmaceutske škole i njene naklonosti prema kemiji, koja čini sastavni dio studija prehrambene tehnologije. Profesorica Galić kaže da je i danas zadovoljna sa svojom odlukom. Prehrambena tehnologija, kao i sva druga područja, doživljavaju svoj napredak. Međutim napredak u inovacijama, na žalost, na znanstvenim institucijama, vrlo često ovise o financijskim izvorima ustanove. Preporuka mladim kolegama, koji pokazuju interes za prehrambenu tehnologiju ili nutricionizam, je da to svakako i realiziraju. Očiti interes, kod nas i u svijetu, je u području funkcionalne hrane i rješavanje problema pravilne prehrane, stoga i ne čudi interes mladih ljudi za studiranjem na ovim područjima.
