FLAVOURsome Satellite Event

On 23 of September, 2024, a dedicated satellite meeting will be organised as a pre-event of the 17th International Weurman Flavour Research Symposium that will be held on 24 – 27 September 2024 at Wageningen University and Research in Wageningen, The Netherlands.

Researchers in the fields of food chemistry, biology, neurophysiology, psychology, and taste research from academia and industry come together to addresses a variety of subjects related to flavour research, ranging from perception, well-being, and health to flavour creation in food products. These topics include:

  • Multimodal taste perception: from chemical combinations to brain signals;
  • Role of flavour in food intake and wellbeing;
  • Perception of flavour: from molecules to receptors to perception;
  • Flavour representation and creation;
  • Modelling of flavour activity and development of new analytical methods for flavour analysis.

The goal of the FLAVOURsome COST Action is to advance knowledge in the same topics with a well-aligned research strategy organised into four working groups. Thus, networking and establishing connections with the Weurman Symposium will allow the scientific community to share knowledge and work on common interests and perspectives in the field of flavour research.

For this reason, we organise a satellite meeting to precede the 2024 Weurman Flavour Research Symposium. Leading experts from the FLAVOURsome COST Action will be invited to deliver a talk at this satellite meeting around the Working Group topics, and participation is open to all FLAVOURsome members and Weurman participants. The program will include short talks and flash talks from selected abstracts. Co-attendance of the Weurman is not required.

Our objectives in organising this satellite meeting are:

  1. To spread knowledge about the research conducted at FLAVOURsome COST Action,
  2. Encourage networking and collaborations between FLAVOURsome researchers and attendees of the Weurman symposium.

This event is part of the activities of the COST Action FLAVOURsome, CA22161, which is supported by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology). COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology) is a funding agency for research and innovation networks. Our Actions help connect research initiatives across Europe and enable scientists to grow their ideas by sharing them with their peers. This boosts their research, career and innovation.
