Young EFFoST Day

The fifth edition of Young EFFoST Day is an exciting opportunity for students and young food scientists from academia, industry, and start-ups to expand their professional network! The day consists of interactive activities including inspiring talks and networking. Register here.

The Young EFFoST Day will be held the morning before the official start of the 36th EFFoST International Conference. It will take place at the AVIVA Stadium in Dublin, Ireland on Monday 7 November 2022.

The day will start with an inspiring talk based around the theme of Shaping the Production of Sustainable, Healthy Foods for the Future. Representatives from industry, academia and non-profit organizations will then give insights into their personal career paths and share their key learnings. Throughout the day, talks will alternate with time for discussion and exchanges to make the Young EFFoST Day a unique opportunity to build your network and connect with more experienced food professionals before we move on to the EFFoST2022 conference together.

On Sunday 6 November, Young EFFoST Day 2022 will kick off with an informal get-together at a venue to be confirmed. This is a great chance to meet other Young EFFoST Day attendees as well as attendees of both EFFoST2022 and NTP2022.
