EHPRG is a largely multidisciplinary conference of European scientists who are using high pressure in their research. The studies span an exceptionally wide range: from pure physics to material science, molecular dynamics, chemistry, food technology, bioscience and biotechnology even including some medical perspectives. The application of high pressure as physical parameter can lead to significantly new information about the studied systems. New materials with improved properties can also be created by pressure. Pressure-inactivation of various biological systems has also wide perspectives in food- bio- and medical sciences.
