Food Industry Training, Events, and Workshops

As the COVID-19 outbreak continues, the Center for Industrial Research and Service (CIRAS) continues to prioritize the health and safety of our communities, clients, and staff. We have made the decision to cancel, postpone, or move online all CIRAS in-person events through the end of 2020. Webinars will continue as planned. Full refunds will be issued for canceled events and to those unable to attend rescheduled events. Please contact us at ciras@iastate.edu or 515-294-3420 with any questions.
