Postgraduate Competition 2019

The Nutrition Society Postgraduate Competition offers current members of the Nutrition Society registered for a Higher Degree the opportunity to be selected to present a short review paper on their research topic at the 13th European Nutrition Conference FENS 2019 during the Postgraduate Symposium.

Application Criteria

How to apply 

Applicants are required to complete and submit the online application form by 1 March. Before completing the form, please ensure you have the following available:

  • an abstract of the proposed topic of their review (not greater than one A4 page).  Abstracts must include: a title, author details (including name, affiliation and supervisor/s name), aims/scope/objective of the review, critical discussion of existing knowledge, overall conclusions/areas for future research. Download an example.
  • a curriculum vitae;
  • a 250 word biography.

Presentations should consist of a review of the literature and include a substantial element of the student’s own work*.

The review that is presented must not have been submitted for publication or published elsewhere and preference will be given to applicants who are in the final year of their postgraduate programme.

* As review papers are published in the Proceedings of the Nutrition Society and do not normally contain primary data it is anticipated that the student’s own work would already be published or in press.


If you have any queries, please contact the Society’s Conference Coordinator.
