E3S Student Group


The E3S Student & Early Stage Researcher group was founded in 2015 to help students from across Europe to network, and have a voice in the wider professional sensory community as the students of today are the future of sensory tomorrow.

The newly established group aims to:

  • Develop a network of sensory science students across Europe
  • Provide a platform where sensory science students can communicate with one another
  • Improve the national sensory science groups of each European country associated with E3S
  • Contribute monthly posts to the student space of the E3S website
  • Instigate student specific events at already existing sensory conferences, as well as organising unique student events in the future

The group would like to build up a network of students working in sensory science from across all of the European countries involved in E3S. If you, or someone you know, would like to be involved please contact
