Hygienic Study Award 2018

Since its inception in 2009, the Hygienic Study Award has honoured the next generation of researchers and scientists by promoting science and research in the field of hygienic processing. Knowledge and research resulting from the award are an added value which will contribute to the advancement of Hygienic Design worldwide and which will encourage the development of an international community in this important topic.

The award acknowledges three remarkable, innovative and high-quality diploma, bachelor's, master's and PhD's theses. Such studies should e.g. highlight the hygienic engineering and design of machinery and equipment, best practices in material usage and material surfaces under hygienic aspects as well as the general field of fouling and cleaning of food-related materials, food contact materials, tailored surfaces and the attachment of microbial species.
