IFST's Young Scientist Competition offers undergraduate/postgraduate students (UK) the opportunity to present their current/recently completed food-related project in front of their peers and to a panel of food professionals.
- The undergraduate competition is open to all first, second, third and final year students. The subject and presentation does not have to be taken from their dissertation: it can be taken from a piece of course work or work experience.
- The postgraduate competition is open to all current postgraduate students and also to ‘early-career’ postgraduates. All entrants (post-graduate students or ‘early-career’ food professionals) to this category must be within three years of graduating from their first degree.
