-What are some of the major FST problems/challenges that have to be tackled during humanitarian crises and what could be the specific role of food technologists in addressing food security concerns?
-Why is it important to train students and practitioners in FST in order to tackle humanitarian crises?
-Why transformative change channeled by humanitarian response needs to embrace innovation not just within agricultural production but across the whole food system and why it should link nutritional concerns to complementary capabilities of FST
-How FST might help turn food systems deeply affected by humanitarian crises into more resilient ones and how this could enhance longer term recovery and foster further sustainable development
-How building on current humanitarian crises through innovation and more inclusive solutions may help us address some of the emerging food security challenges that threaten developed countries as a result of homelessness, migration, climate change and other factors
