Three awards will be bestowed during the conference.

EFAD 2019 Kellogg Dietetic Research Price

New format of the Kellogg’s Dietetic Research Awards

EFAD is pleased to announce the Kellogg’s Dietetic Research Awards. Kellogg’s recognizes the importance of good nutrition & food science research to advance the future of human health, food security and a sustainable food supply. This year the format is different from the years before: next to the jury award the public can vote at the EFAD conference for its favourite dietetic research. There will be two awards: a Jury Award and a Public Award. Both winners receive 500 euro.

The Jury Award

The judging of research abstracts and selection of award winners will be done by a dedicated EFAD Committee. The judges reserve the right to split the prize or withhold the prize altogether depending on the quality of the work with respect to the judging criteria.

The award criteria are as follows:

  • Scientific quality of the study
  • Value to the profession of dietetics
  • Clear and simple execution of abstract / poster
  • Permission to publish the poster and name of the winners on the EFAD website, in the Proceedings of the Conference and other promotional material.

NEW: Public Award: vote for your favourite dietetic research

For the public award, participants can vote during the conference by using the conference app. This year we will have guided poster presentations and we ask the participants to vote just after the presentations.

To secure your chance of winning one of the two prestigious awards, be sure to submit your research abstract before the 20 June deadline. Send in your research, your colleagues will be happy to learn from you!!
