EUROSENSE 2020
TO 13th-16th OF DECEMBER 2020

Online: Live and On-demand

Further information

Registration deadline for live participation: Friday 11 December 2020 12 Noon GMT

Due to the continued uncertainty regarding international travel and, in particular, quarantine requirements for travel to The Netherlands during the current Coronavirus pandemic we have taken the difficult decision to host EuroSense 2020 as an online conference only – on the same dates 13-16 December 2020.

Although we were confident of being able to host the in-person event safely onsite, we realise the ongoing and changing travel restrictions make it very difficult for delegates and us, as organisers, to plan effectively for an onsite event.

While we will miss the opportunity for face-to-face interaction, our online conference platform will facilitate presentation of the latest research on the conference topics and the opportunity for you to meet with your EUROSENSE community. Our online programme will include access to the same great content planned for our in-person event with presentations from our expert invited speakers together with contributed talks and ePosters – all available on-demand for one month after the event. You can stream this interactive conference experience live from your desktop or mobile device and connect during the event with speakers and other attendees.

For those of you who have not attended an online conference before please refer to our FAQs.

We continue to look forward to meeting again in person at EUROSENSE. Until that time please register to join us at our first online conference.

E3S STUDENT AWARD 2020

The four winners of the E3S Student Award 2020 will be awarded
during Eurosense

In addition to the traditional three E3S PhD awards, the board of E3S dedicate a Special Award in memory of Pieter Punter (1947-2017), following the tradition started at Eurosense 2018.
Pieter was an integral backbone of E3S since its inception and an enthusiastic and thought-provoking contributor in the field of sensory consumer research since the 1980s.


SAVE THE DATE !
The next E3S Symposium and General Assembly will take place the 10th – 11th May 2021
This event will be organised online by Sensory Division (ATJ) of Finnish Society of Food Science and Technology (ETS)


COVID-19 PANDEMIC – MESSAGE TO E3S MEMBERS

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the E3S would like to remind members of the following points when considering Sensory and Consumer testing:

  1. Each country is at a different stage in the pandemic and are facing slightly different challenges so please follow your own country’s government advice, legislation and public health guidelines.
  2. Consider your social responsibility the ethical considerations surrounding any testing during this pandemic. The health and safety of your panellists is your responsibility and is of paramount importance – do not put your panellists at any unnecessary risk.
  3. If considering Home-Use Testing or online methods of consumer evaluation (e.g. focus groups):
    • the delivery of samples should abide by good practices as per the health authority’s advice. In these cases, please consider the risks associated for your employees/contractors with the delivery of samples.
    • context effects/bias prompted by the reigning situation will be also expected in these cases and should be noted in the validity of the resulting data.
