European Sensory Science Society (E3S) will be constituted in Florence (Italy) on the 12th of May 2011, with the objective of bringing together national sensory science organizations from Europe under a single organization. National sensory societies from 12 countries (Austria, Denmark, Italy, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands, United Kingdom), will join the E3S confederation to promote co-operation, shared goals, integration of activities and knowledge and information exchange amongst national sensory science organisations across Europe.
To mark this historical occasion, the E3S will host a seminar which will take place in Florence, on the 13th of May 2011.
The meeting will be an opportunity for presenting and discussing several topics focusing on the role of sensory science in industry, research and society.
