Poster Competition

At the EuroFIR Food Forum 2016 we were pleased to host our first scientific poster competition.

The competition was open to any original scientific research providing it meets the required format and could be categorised under one of the three topics (see below).

Abstracts were submitted and candidates that were successful were asked to develop their abstracts into posters for presentation at the Food Forum symposium. There also were awards for the best abstract and poster in each of the three following categories, based on scientific content and presentation:
