Venue: EBI Auditorium
The Faculty of Biotechnology has the pleasure to invite all the community to the Research Seminar "Temporal Sensory Analysis".
Speaker: Pascal Schlich (University of Dijon and INRA - National Institute for Agronomical Research)
Sensory perception is a temporal process and most times consumer acceptance of products is largely linked with the entire eating or drinking experience. Temporal sensory analysis methods, study the change of attributes over time, while eating a food product, constituting an important tool to fully understand sensory experiences and liking.
Pascal Schlich is a Professor at the University of Dijon and Director of Research with the INRA (National Institute for Agronomical Research) in Dijon, France. He is currently the head of the ChemoSens platform which gathers the facilities in both sensory and physicochemical analyses of the Center for Taste and Feeding (CSGA) in Dijon. Dr. Schlich has been doing methodological research for about 25 years on difference testing, panellist performances, descriptive analysis, preference mapping and new sensory data collection techniques such as the Temporal Dominance of Sensations (TDS). These last 10 years he was also in charge of national research projects about sensory education of children and consumer preferences towards fat, sweet and salt sensations.
