Премия Arrell Global Food Innovation Awards

 

 

The Arrell Global Food Innovation Awards has been launched to recognize global excellence in food innovation and community impact.

Arrell Food Institute recognizes global leaders who are ensuring future food security for the planet, and hopes to inspire new leaders to take bold steps towards change. Scientific excellence and community engagement are necessary to overcome the challenges our world will face in feeding 9 billion people and beyond.

The Arrell Food Prizes come with the following terms:

        Each of the two prizes will be worth $125,000 CAD comprising a $100,000 cash award for the personal use of recipients and up to $25,000 per award for travel and accommodation of the recipients, administered by the Arrell Food Institute at the University of Guelph.

        An award citation and a commemorative item will also be presented.

        Recipients are expected to participate in a program of events. In particular, award recipients may be asked to attend the next Arrell Food Summit. There may also be other engagements organized, subject to mutual availability.

        Given the current global pandemic a determination on the travel and accommodation component of the award will be made some time during the 2021 calendar year.

Eligibility Criteria

        Citizens of any country are eligible for nomination, with no restrictions on gender, race, religion, creed or residency.

        Nominations may come from private companies, academic institutions, governmental units, charitable foundations, and not-for-profit organizations. In the case of multiple nominations from a single organization, only the one with the latest date will be accepted.

The criteria for awarding the Arrell Food Prizes are as follows:

        The individual or group being nominated will have made exceptionally significant and documented contributions to either their scientific understanding related to food production, distribution or sales, or human nutrition/consumption; and/or at the community level in markedly improving nutrition, including access to, or distribution of food.

        The nomination package must clearly demonstrate how the individual or group being nominated played a critical leadership role in achieving the above noted contributions.
