Outline

 

Eleventh Edition European PhD Flavor Research Awards - Academic year 2020/2021 for final year PhD students

 

The programme aims to raise the profile of flavor science research in

Europe by encouraging students of differing scientific disciplines to

engage in innovating flavor-related research PhD projects and thus to

advance the exciting and challenging field of flavor science.

 

PhD Student can be from any scientific background but one aim of the

bursaries is to attract people who have not studied Food Chemistry, Food

Science or Food Technology to study food flavors

 

The programme is supported by the consortium of companies for its 11th year comprising

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • DSM
  • Givaudan
  • Firmenich
  • Kerry
  • Kikkoman
  • Lesaffre
  • MCLS Europe

The applicant must be enrolled in a relevant European university/ institute for his/her PhD study.

 

Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2019 can be considered

 

The applicant should not be already sponsored by, and/or bound to, a commercial organization

 

The thesis should clearly explain the starting hypotheses or the goals and aims of the work

 

Clarity of expression and effective communication of results is a key aspect in assessing the thesis

 

Appropriate data analysis should be evident

 

Clear abstracts and summaries are expected

 

Clear Figures and Tables are expected

 

What is funded

 

Flavor research amongst PhD students across European universities and institutes

 

Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2020 can be considered

 

Duration

 

1 year

 

Eligibility

 

Novelty:

 

All PhD studies should contain a degree of novelty and this will be

part of the judging criteria.  Novelty may be a new method for studying

flavor or new findings or some other aspect of the PhD study

 

Results:

 

The results should show good experimental design and robust

methodology e.g. adequate replication and sampling to support the

conclusions

 

Publications:

 

Some theses are composed of published papers, others are more

narrative in style. Thus, the judging criteria will take these different

styles into consideration and publication of the thesis results will not be an essential criterion for judging

 

Evidence of enrolment and thesis submission in 2020 at the

university/ institute should be provided by the student. The electronic

copy of the thesis must be countersigned by the Professor and submitted

by December 15, 2020
