This programme aims to raise the profile of flavour science research in Europe by encouraging students of different scientific disciples to engage in innovating flavour-related research PhD projects and thus to advance the exciting and challenging field of flavour science. Ph.D. students enrolled in universities and research institutes in 32 European countries (European Union, UK, Switzerland, Norway, Turkey and Russia) are eligible to apply for:
Best Ph.D. thesis award - the winning student will receive €5000 and will present his/her work to potential employers at the annual Savory Flavor and Food Industry Conference in Geneva.
6 Bursaries for 1st year Ph.D. students - the winning students will receive €3000 each and will have the opportunity to visit the laboratory of one of the sponsor companies during the second year of their Ph.D. studies.
