Test management = 20%
* Contribute to choosing the most appropriate methodology regarding the project objectives and the logistical constraints, organize tests (discriminative tests, descriptive tests and consumer tests) and ensure that they are being performed correctly and timely, so that the results they deliver have the right quality standards.
Data processing = 30%
* Analyze the data obtained from the sensory and consumer tests. Run the relevant statistical tests according to guidelines and scientific validity. Draw conclusions from an SCI perspective as well as from a business perspective.
