11th E3S annual Symposium 2023: SAVE THE DATE

Uniqueness and diversity in a globalized world – a sensory perspective

15-16 May 2023

Uppsala, Sweden

The European Sensory Science Society is happy to announce the dates of the Symposium 2023.

This year it will take place in collaboration with the Swedish Sensory Network (SSN) (Sweden)

Trade and technology have made the world into a more connected and interdependent place and together we face several challenges, not the least related to climate change but also to an increased prevalence of non-communicable diseases such as obesity. However, when tackling these challenges there is not one global solution, thus we need to consider the diversity and uniqueness of different countries and cultures but also related to individual characteristics of the consumer. Here, sensory methods can contribute with important knowledge and the 11th E3S Annual symposium will include talks related to sensory uniqueness and diversity ranging from products to the individual.

Speakers from academia and industry will present the latest research.
