PhD seminar, Sensory and Consumer Science

PhD seminar, Sensory and Consumer Science
The Danish Sensory Society (D2S) and IDA Food Science invites you to an inspiring day; the second seminar on sensory and consumer science for PhD students, and professionals in academia and industry in Denmark.

The seminar will provide a unique opportunity for you as PhD students to present, discover and involve yourself in the latest PhD research projects in Demark within the same and related fields as yourself. You will also have the opportunity to create/maintain a network among peers within the sensory and consumer science area.  

The day will be a mix of pitches, presentations, to inspire discussions in both larger and smaller groups with the focus on the current PhD projects in Denmark both from a scientific and an applicable perspective.

Keynote speaker is Prof. Erminio Monteleone from University of Florence, who won the E3S Established Researcher award 2022.  

D2S has also invited selected speakers for the day. There will be four overall topics for the day, but also an opportunity to discuss your own project with peers. 

The overall topics are:1. Sustainability

  • 3. Sensory product perception
  • 4. Food choice and eating behaviour.
