Young EFFoST

The EYES for your future career in Food Science and Technology


Our Objective
The EYES for your future career in food science and technology, in which EYES stands for EFFoST, Young scientists, Events & Social network.

Young EFFoST is a group created for and by postgraduate students, early-career food scientists and food professionals. All food-related domains are welcome, from hard sciences researching food structure to social and human sciences focused on consumer acceptability, as well as medicinal science researching how food affects the human body. Future challenges in the food sector, require constructive meetings and discussions among the next generation of food professionals. Therefore Young EFFoST is organising events to support the emergence of innovative solutions for these challenges that meet societal expectations such as sustainability and animal welfare


Young EFFoST aims to (1) improve networking, (2) develop personal and/or professional skills, and (3) help young scientists to acquire knowledge related to food science. Through Young EFFoST you will have the opportunity to learn and interact with experienced food scientists from research institutions and the food industry worldwide.

Young EFFoST will be governed by the Young EFFoST Council consisting of eight early-career, active food scientists and food professionals from different European countries. The chair and co-chair of the Young EFFoST Council are also actively involved in the EFFoST Standing Committee 'Career Development & Education'.

We are pleased to announce the 7th Young EFFoST Day will be held in Bruges, Belgium on 14 November 2024.
