Werner Baltes Award of the Young Scientist

Werner Baltes

The Society of Food Chemistry (LChG) - Division in the GDCh, awards the Werner Baltes Prize to young colleagues who are already independently scientifically active but not yet permanently appointed, for special scientific achievements. The prize should be an incentive for further successful activities. The prize money is EUR 2000.00. The prize is awarded at the festive session of the annual food chemists' day. The awardee presents his scientific achievements in a lecture.

The Young Scientist Award was established in 1969 and from 1998 to 2017 bore the name of Prof. Dr. Kurt Teufel (1892-1970). In 2017 the prize was awarded in honor of Prof. Dr. Werner Baltes (1929 - 2013) renamed the "Werner Baltes Award of the Young Scientist" and awarded under this name for the first time in 2018. The food chemist Werner Baltes was the first awardee of the "Young Scientist Prize" in 1970. He is and was particularly known for his teaching publications and has made a special contribution to the training and promotion of young food chemists.

Bruno Rossmann Award

Bruno Roßmann (Jugendbildnis)

awardee

The Bruno Rossmann Award of the Bruno Roßmann Foundation is awarded during the Food Chemists Day by the Society of Food Chemistry - Division in the German Chemical Society . The prize consists of a certificate, a picture and curriculum vitae of the founder as well as a sum of up to 5,000 euros.

According to the will of the founder, scientific work on the following focal points can be awarded:

     

  • Rapid methods for the detection of harmful substances on and in food,
  • Methods for the examination of food with simple means, if, for example, the technical equipment can no longer be used for external reasons, as well as
  • Improvement of nutrition, elimination of harmful substances, better physiological utilization.

The funding objective thus serves the practice-oriented consumer protection with special consideration of rapid methods or innovative approaches to resource-saving food analysis as well as the improvement of the nutritional situation through technological advances, among other things through the reduction of undesirable substances.

Younger scientists whose work corresponds to the purpose of the foundation are invited to apply for the Bruno Rossmann Award through tenders - usually every two years - in the most important journals and journals. For this purpose, the thesis from the above-mentioned areas, written in German or English, a one-page German summary and documents about the academic career must be submitted. In addition, suitable work can be proposed by third parties if the relevant documents are attached.

A group of experts, Prof. Dr. Mirko Bunzel, Karlsruhe (chair), Prof. Dr. Thomas Kuballa, Karlsruhe, and Dr. Katrin Hoenicke, Hamburg.

Applications and suggestions are requested in electronic form by April 15, 2023 to the chairman of the Food Chemistry Society - Division in the GDCh, n.buerger@gdch.de.
