Expressions of Interest are now open to host the 2019 AIFST Summer School! 




Free for AIFST STUDENT AND GRADUATE MEMBERS. If you aren't a current member, you can join online today. 

More than 550 students over the past eight years have attended the AIFST Food Science Summer School, coming together for an event that provides an avenue to learn, network, get inspired and promote individual research projects focusing on the food industry.

Over the course of two days, students and graduates will:

  • Build their professional food industry network among their peers, industry and academia
  • Be exposed to food industry opportunities through industry guest speakers, who can provide insight and advice on prospective career paths. Speakers may also be able to reflect on their experiences with post study in both research and industry.
  • Experience local site tours around the host city with “real world” industrial or research facilities, offering opportunities to engage firsthand.
  • Build industry relevant skills including presentation and public speaking skills with a platform for participants to present their current research in front of their peers.
  • Build on current skills through workshops designed to challenge food science and technology knowledge and encourage critical and reflective thinking. 



Lots of opportunities for meeting and talking with peers, academics and industry personnel with expertise and knowledge in different areas can even build lifelong connections.
