College of Early Career Scientists

The College of Early Career Scientists was formed to promote high standards of ethics and scientific endeavour among food scientists and technologists and to formalize a relationship for the young scientists selected to speak at the IUFoST World Food Congresses, chosen for exemplifying the best in young science from among nominations by IUFoST Adhering Bodies and members worldwide. Young Scientists invited to present their findings to the World Congresses will be granted admittance into the ECS section. This group will be creating its own structure and, amongst other activities, will be Ambassadors for IUFoST and IAFoST.  Early Career Scientists may be nominated to the College by their IUFoST Adhering Bodies, Fellows of the Academy, Board of Directors and Council of CECS.
