Event Details

Are you an early career scientist (MSc or PhD student or in 1st post-doc) carrying out research in areas of interest to the food industry? If so you will want to come to this one-day event to highlight your work to others in the broad area of UK food science and key figures in the UK food industry. The day will provide opportunities to network and find out more about the varied careers available in the food industry from our industrial speakers and other delegates.

The emphasis of the day is on communication of the interest and excitement of your science to a mixed audience to showcase your talents and to develop future career networks. We are aiming to attract as broad a mixture of academic disciplines as possible to truly represent the science base necessary for a thriving food sector so encourage delegates from across the full range of nutrition, engineering, biochemistry, psychology, microbiology and the physical and chemical sciences.

There will be spaces for oral and poster presentations and prizes will be available for the best presentations. These prizes are likely to be experiences (e.g. visits to companies’ headquarters and opportunities to present to industrial groups).
