Connecting the Consumer and Sensory Science

Wednesday 17th May 2017

University College Dublin

UCD Institute of Food and Health, in conjunction with Sensory Food Network Ireland, are organising a one-day seminar entitled 'Connecting the Consumer and Sensory Science'. This seminar will provide a unique opportunity to hear leading experts share their experiences from the challenges and opportunities arising from using sensory science to design foods that align with consumer demands for new sensory experiences, and that can be tailored for specific markets. A wide range of aspects of sensory science will be covered including: mining sensory data to address and elucidate consumer needs; using state-of-the-art instrumentation to understand at a molecular level, the characteristics of of foods that underpin consumer choice; and exploring the use of sensory tools to support innovation within the food industry. 

There is no charge to attend the workshop but places are limited. To register, please follow this link or contact Dr Geraldine Quinn at geraldine.quinn@ucd.ie or on +353 (0) 1 716 2808.
