One major activity of  IUFoST Education programming  is  focused on the mechanisms and procedures for granting the Recognition of Further and Higher Education courses in Food Science and Technology. This programme began at the request of IUFoST national scientific bodies requesting a global benchmark for evaluating and achieving education standards.  

Find more information on IUFoST’s Programme Certification and to request approval.  There is a sliding scale cost from a maximum of US$1500 for institutes according to country designation and involvement with IUFoST national scientific bodies.  Recognised Institutes will be approved formally at the next IUFoST World Congress, Rimini, Italy in September 2024.
