KTN Early Career Researchers in Food 2016

2016 sees the 4th KTN Early Career Researchers in Food Event, on 18th October in Manchester. Previous events have had great attendance from industry and academia. 

The emphasis of the day is to give early career researchers the opportunity to communicate the interest and excitement of their research to a mixed audience to showcase their talents and to develop future career networks. There is the opportunity to find out more about the varied careers available in the food industry from our industrial speakers and other delegates. There will be spaces for oral and poster presentations and prizes will be available for the best presentations. These prizes will be experiences (e.g. visits to companies’ headquarters and opportunities to present to industrial groups). 

We are aiming to attract as broad a mixture of academic disciplines as possible to truly represent the science base necessary for a thriving food sector so encourage delegates from across the full range of nutrition, engineering, biochemistry, psychology, microbiology and the physical and chemical sciences.
