The programme aims to raise the profile of flavor science research in Europe by encouraging students of differing scientific disciplines to engage in innovating flavor-related research PhD projects and thus to advance the exciting and challenging field of flavor science.

PhD Student can be from any scientific background but one aim of the bursaries is to attract people who have not studied Food Chemistry, Food Science or Food Technology to study food flavors

The programme is supported by the consortium of companies for its 9th year comprising

  • DSM
  • Givaudan
  • IFF
  • Kerry
  • Lesaffre
  • MCLS Europe
  • Nestlé

The applicant must be enrolled in a relevant European university/ institute for his/her PhD study.

Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2018 can be considered

The applicant should not be already sponsored by, and/or bound to, a commercial organization

The thesis should clearly explain the starting hypotheses or the goals and aims of the work

Clarity of expression and effective communication of results is a key aspect in assessing the thesis

Appropriate data analysis should be evident

Clear abstracts and summaries are expected

Clear Figures and Tables are expected


What is funded

Flavor research amongst PhD students across European universities and institutes

Any flavor related project that has led to the submission of a PhD in 2018 can be considered



1 year



All PhD studies should contain a degree of novelty and this will be part of the judging criteria.  Novelty may be a new method for studying flavor or new findings or some other aspect of the PhD study


The results should show good experimental design and robust methodology e.g. adequate replication and sampling to support the conclusions


Some theses are composed of published papers, others are more narrative in style. Thus, the judging criteria will take these different styles into consideration and publication of the thesis results will not be an essential criterion for judging

Evidence of enrolment and thesis submission in 2018 at the university/ institute should be provided by the student. The electronic copy of the thesis must be countersigned by the Professor
