Hosting our conference

EFFoST is looking for European universities and research institutes to host the EFFoST International Conference in 2021. This event is a great opportunity to showcase your research, raise your profile and help to shape the future direction of the Food Science and Technology field.

Each year, the scientific programme of this 2.5-day event is organised by a different local organising committee. For 2021, EFFoST is encouraging Universities or Research Centres in the field of Food Science and Technology with an excellent scientific reputation to submit their bid.

The bid process consists of two rounds. The first round requires interested European members of EFFoST to submit an Expression of Interest to info@effost.org by 5 July 2019.  By 26 July, the organisations of the shortlisted top three proposals will be invited to submit a full proposal by 20 September 2019.

The annual EFFoST International conference is a highlight for many professionals working in Food Science and Technology.  It is an important scientific event that brings together researchers, scientists, technologists, engineers, policy makers, professionals and students from multidisciplinary food-related fields. Our conferences inspire a cross-pollination of new knowledge, ideas and applications. Additionally, it promotes networking and collaboration and it enhances academia and industry synergism in the quest for sustainable food innovations for the global economy and society.
