Young EFFoST Day 2021

The fourth edition of Young EFFoST Day is an exciting opportunity for students and young food scientists from academia, industry, and start-ups to expand their professional network! The day consists of interactive activities including inspiring talks and networking. 

The Young EFFoST will be held the morning before the official start of the 35th EFFoST International Conference. It will take place at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne, Switzerland on Monday 1 November 2021.

The day will start with an inspiring talk on the social and environmental implications of food value and the role we can all play. Representatives from industry, academia and non-profit organizations will then give insights into their personal career paths and share their key learnings. Throughout the day, talks will alternate with time for discussion and exchanges to make the Young EFFoST Day a unique opportunity to build your network and connect with more experienced food professionals before we move on to the conference together.

On Sunday 31 October, Young EFFoST Day 2021 will kick off with an informal get-together at the Bar Lacustre. This is a great chance to meet other Young EFFoST Day attendees while enjoying a selection of artisanal and international beers and fine spirits in one of the most popular bars in Central Lausanne.
