IMS Prize for Meat Science and Technology
The IMS has decided to fund the IMS Prize annually for a trial period over the next two years with a value of €5000 for each year. The Prize for 2007 is to be awarded for a presentation, lecture or poster concerned with red meat and delivered at the 2006 ICoMST annual meeting, by any early-stage or mid-career researcher.
The judges will put emphasis on the contribution that has the most impact on either knowledge or application for the industry, or the furtherance of meat science and technology. The winner will be selected by a panel of internationally respected meat scientists and industry representatives. There will be only one named winner and the work must be uniquely his/her own effort or he/she must be the authenticated and acknowledged originator, innovator and leader of the work conducted by a group of scientists/technologists.
All contributing participants at the Dublin meeting who qualify on age (less than 40 years) and other grounds may indicate on their submissions that they wish their contribution to be considered for the IMS Prize. Expressions of interest will be accepted until Registration at the meeting. Group leaders who wish to be considered must provide evidence that they initiated and led the work being described.
Approval of the Judges' decision will be sought at a meeting of the IMS Executive Council later in the year and the winner will be notified immediately afterwards.
The International Meat Secretariat reserves the right not to award the Prize if there is no suitable submission and alternative approaches may be sought to identify a prizewinner.
