E3S EuroSense Student Awards 2020

The European Sensory Science Society is pleased to announce that four awards of €1,500 will be given out to PhD students enrolled at Universities in E3S Member countries.

In addition to the traditional three E3S PhD awards, the board of E3S has decided to dedicate a Special Award in memory of Pieter Punter (1947-2017), following the tradition started at Eurosense 2018. Pieter was an integral backbone of E3S since its inception and an enthusiastic and thought-provoking contributor in the field of sensory consumer research since the 1980s. In agreement with his family and former colleagues, the prize will be awarded to a PhD student working on consumer research or sensometrics, with a taste for consumer diversity.
