Science to Society Award

EFFoST has introduced a new award, the Science to Society Award. This award gives recognition to individuals or organisations whose work has advanced understanding and appreciation of the value of food science and technology to society.

The first award was presented in 2015 to the International Union of Food Science and Technology (IUFoST) for their Global Food Safety Curricula Initiative. An initiative led by IUFoST with many academia and other partners to identify gaps in food safety curricula, build capacity, and establish and harmonize core competencies at the university and graduate levels. The Global Food Safety Curricula Initiative is an ambitious project which will add the power of education to ensuring food safety on a global level.

After its presentation to the International Union of Food Science and Technology in 2015, in 2016 the award was given to dr. Jürgen Lucas from the European Commission, Brussels.
