We are glad to announce that our network is growing. This year we are adding four new members, and with them, we are expanding our expertise as well as the numbers of countries and sensory cultures. Alexandre, Anne, Chris, and Keren – a very warm welcome from all of us.

Eleven PhDs from different countries will be recruited, working in research environments with internationally recognized expertise in areas such as sensory perception, consumer sciences and sensometrics, food choice and behaviour, feeding behaviour, social marketing, consumer socialization, and cognitive psychology.

The results of a research programme co-funded by ESN just have been published in Food Research International: TDL - a new method to understand the consumers' needs.
