In Europe, interest in sensory science has grown and will continue to play an essential role in understanding the European consumer's perception of food quality.
This conference is an ideal opportunity to gain insight into the contribution that sensory and consumer scientists can make towards satisfying the current and future requirements and expectations of modern European society. This conference will also consider sensory evaluation in non food applications.

Eurosense is an ideal networking opportunity and will appeal to scientists, professionals and industrialists. Under the banner of 'A Sense of Quality' the conference will discuss:-

* Update the scientific pillars of sensory science (physiological, psychological, methods and statistical)
* Health and ethical concerns in Europe and consumer affective responses to food
* Perceived quality of organic (and other sustainable production system) food products
* Sensory & marketing integration
* Sensory and non sensory dimensions of food
* Consumer testing in the European multicultural society
* Sensory research and quality assurance of the European specific products (PDO products, traditional products)
* Application of sensory analysis in food and non food industries
* Future of sensory and consumer science in Europe (academic, standards, regulations)
