Join us for an exciting and innovative sensory science hackathon in Donostia-San Sebastián on November 25th-26th 2023!
Be a part of the solution to creating a healthy, green, and delicious food system for Europe in 2040. Work in teams with fellow MSc students and young researchers to tackle challenges and compete for 12 hours under the guidance of expert speakers from top international research groups such as Nofima, BI Norwegian Business School, LASEHU-UPV, Kansas State University, and Universidad Autónoma de Madrid. This is a unique opportunity to dive into the world of sensory science and explore its critical role in food-related research.
Duration: 2 days
Location: LABe (Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain)
Be a part of the solution to creating a healthy, green, and delicious food system for Europe in 2040. Work in teams with fellow MSc students and young researchers to tackle challenges and compete for 12 hours (8 + 4) under the guidance of expert speakers from top international research groups from Kansas State University, Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Biosustainability (Technical University of Denmark), or Delft University of Technology. This is a unique opportunity to dive into the world of sensory science and explore its critical role in food-related research.
During the SCIENCE HACKATHON, different methodological solutions will be proposed by the young researchers teams, designing tools that food companies, institutions, and the whole society could use to build a better future food system.
• master’s students
• doctoral students
• young researchers
(up to 7 years after the PhD) in the field of the food science
Application deadline: 3 November 2023
Deadline for Registering for the Hackathon: 03.11.2023

Deadline for applying for a Mobility Grant (UPWr): 13.10.2023.
Programme start dates: 10–14 July 2023
Duration: 5 days
Location: University of Miguel Hernandez de Elche (Orihuela, Spain) The Summer School is focused on basic sensory methods (discriminative, descriptive, and effective testing). Participants will get hands-on experience with planning and conducting sensory and consumer tests and will visit the labs. The summer school will be based primarily on practical workshops, engaging participants in the experience and equipping them with practical, current and exciting knowledge for use in contemporary food science research.
• master’s students
• doctoral students
• young researchers (up to 7 years after the PhD) in the field of the food science
Fee: travel costs, accommodation and costs of participation in the courses are fully covered by the SEASONED project
Application deadline: 16 April 2023
So, mark your calendars and get ready to take your sensory skills to the next level with us this summer! We can’t wait to see you there!
