An homage to the scientific community
The Nils Foss Prize has the primary purpose of honouring the scientific community within agriculture, feed, food and analytical technologies. It recognizes the important research in this community, research which is key in ensuring food quality and secure food safety, provided in a sustainable way to an ever-growing global population. Today more than ever, there is a global need for innovations improving food safety and sustainability, and therefore also for food science. This year, the two prize winners were:
The Nils Foss Excellence Prize 2021: Roy Goodacre from University of Liverpool.
The Nils Foss Talent Prize 2021: Mario Martinez-Martinez from Aarhus University.
FOSS is the proud sponsor of the two prizes, and the prize committee consists of a line of highly respected scientists, heads of innovation from global food companies and a representative from FOSS. Together, they evaluate all the nominees and selects the winners.
