Nominations of excellent PhD candidates in Food Engineering and Technology

December 10, 2018

European Federation of Chemical Engineering is seeking nominations of highly qualified young European scientists for the Food Engineering Award 2019.

The 13th European PhD workshop on Food Engineering and Technology is organised by the EFCE Section on Food in cooperation with the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences (BOKU) Vienna. This year it will be held in Vienna, Austria, on 14-15 May 2019.

Every year the best PhD students in Europe present their recent results. The three best presentations will receive the EFCE Food Engineering Award acknowledging their outstanding contributions in the area of food product and process engineering. Supervisors can nominate excellent PhD candidates by submitting relevant documents of the candidates to the scientific committee by email, deadline 1 February 2019. Highly qualified young European scientists who will finish their PhD in Food Engineering and Technology soon or have recently received a PhD are eligible. Additionally, the candidates should be younger than 35 years old.

Original research papers on innovative topics at the interface between food and engineering are welcome, particularly those of relevance to industry, including:

  • Engineering properties of foods, food physics and physical chemistry
  • Heat and mass transfer in food processing (coupled with chemical or biochemical reactions)
  • Process-structure-function relationships of foods and food constituents
  • Interfacial aspects of food engineering
  • Food particle engineering
  • Product design and engineering
  • Cleaning, disinfection and rinsing
  • Pasteurization, sterilization, hygienic design
  • Modelling and simulation
  • Process measurement and control, packaging, storage and distribution
  • Design and operation of food processes, plant and equipment; process analytical technologies
  • Economics of food engineering, including the economics of alternative processes

The first workshop took place in Germany in 2007 followed by events in France, Italy, Serbia, Spain and Switzerland. They were very successful events, of high quality and well received within the Food Engineering and Technology community.

Co-chairmen: Dr. Volker Heinz (DIL) and Prof. Dr. Henry J├Ąger (BOKU).
