Young Scientists and Students

The challenge is to engage young people for the future health of food science and technology. Facilitated through IUFoST, the Young Scientists are coming together to lead with examples of how they can participate in the international food science and technology community; how their role as ambassadors can encompass networking; and using social media to communicate food science to students in primary and secondary education and as activists to follow and lead activities within IUFoST.   Supporting these efforts, IUFoST has introduced mentorships, several important global competitions for students and graduates, as well as expanding the Young Scientist Congress programme and provides the platform for all young scientist-related activities.
