IFST Young Scientist Competition

IFST Young Scientist Competition is an annual competition offering undergraduate and postgraduate students based in the UK the opportunity to present their current or recently completed food-related project (e.g. food science, food technology, human nutrition as well as other areas that help understand food) in front of their peers and to a panel of food professionals. In addition to the regional rounds in Scotland, Northern Ireland, North of England and South of England, this year we hosted a national final to crown the IFST Young Scientists of the Year in the undergraduate and postgraduate categories

Entries for IFST Young Scientist Competition 2020 will open in early 2020.
