In Münster the Young Food Chemists’ association consists of students and doctoral candidates from university, young professionals and trainees of the second state examination. Our approximately 40 members hold a monthly meeting to exchange ideas, discuss current topics or concerns, and to plan activities and events. Workshops and excursions are offered to interested students from our department. Furthermore we support events of our institute, such as conferences and open house days, and cooperate with the YoungChemists’ Forum Münster. However apart from these important tasks we also coordinate free time activities so don’t miss out!
