Young Scientist Competitions 2017

Following on from the success of the four Young Scientist Competitions in 2016, we are pleased to announce that this year we will be hosting the competition in all of our regions.

This competition offers undergraduate/postgraduate students (UK only) the opportunity to present their current or recently completed food-related project in front of their peers and to a panel of food professionals.

It is the perfect opportunity to find out more about IFST and the benefits of being a member and of course a great opportunity to network with fellow students and people who are working in the food industry.
