Research training food science


  • The student participates in the regular activities of an academic institution. The course is carried out as an individual project. The student identifies which subject area and methodology s/he is interested in and contacts the course leader and a researcher who can be a supervisor. At the beginning of the course, the student and supervisor must write a work plan. The student is introduced to relevant safety routines. A literature study related to the subject area or methods is conducted. The project ends with a short written report in English and an oral presentation for the research group. The report must contain a description of the internship and the tasks performed, a summary of the literature study, and a discussion in relation to the possibilities and limitations of the methods used.


Introduction to safety routines for laboratory and risk analysis, individual supervision and research group meetings are mandatory.



  • Research internship is an individual course whose purpose is to provide an insight into how research and scientific development work is organized and carried out in practice. By participating in a research group for a period, the student gets a good insight into food research. The student acquires practical and theoretical knowledge of different methods used in food research, as well as insight into the limitations of different methods.
