We are pleased to announce that the programme of Young EFFoST Day 2019 has been finalised. Register here, to join this event to expand your professional network in food science.

Young EFFoST Day 2019 Programme:


Registration at the Postillion Convention Centre WTC Rotterdam 



Opening talk by Niek Koning
By taking us through the history of our food production system, Niek Koning will provide context to the work we do today in the field of Agriculture and Food Science. This opening presentation will surely provide some food for thought and will set the stage for an inspiring day packed with discussion and networking.



Networking: Meet your European colleagues
To create the right setting to make new connections, we will hand out interactive bracelets that will help you to find people with whom you share a common interest. The bracelets will light up in the colour of your shared interest, which is based on a questionnaire you will complete before the event.



From an innovative idea to start-up
Food scientists often work on innovative ideas that could potentially solve problems or result in novel products. However, the path from an idea to a successful company is most often a challenging one. We have invited several established start-ups to share their journey and learn from their challenges, pitfalls, and successes!



Young EFFoST Networking event
For this second network session, attendees of the main EFFoST conference are also invited in order to initiate connections between the younger generation with more established food professionals over drinks and snacks at Rotterdam City Hall.



Dinner with 3MTpitch competition
A short walk leads us to the lovely dinner location at the Arminius Church, where we will enjoy a tasty dinner. The 3MT competition will be held in between courses when a number of selected participants will give their 3-minute research pitches from the pulpit. A professional jury together with the public will select the Young EFFoST winner of 2019!
Interested in participating in the 3MT competition? Find more information on the website.
