The E3S Children Working Group aims to facilitate the exchange of research-based knowledge on the mechanisms influencing children’s sensory perception and food preferences, and to promote the further development of methodologies appropriate for data collection from these young consumers.

Active since 2013, the Working Group, previously coordinated by Dr. Margrethe Hersleth (Nofima, SSG), is now coordinated by Dr. Monica Laureati (University of Milan, SISS).
