Hygienic Study Award 2018

Hygienic Study Award 2018

This year, we are also giving ambitious students throughout Europe the opportunity to present their research and study results in the field of hygienic production, for instance in the pharmaceutical or food industry, to an international jury.

All students who are enrolled at a European university or college of higher education can participate in the competition. The thesis should be excellent and preferably written in English. In case it is written in a different language, a comprehensive summary in English should be added. Furthermore, only written works not older than two years can be considered.

This year’s prize money of 1000 euros for the best thesis, 500 euros for the second-placed work and 250 euros for the third-placed work will be kindly provided by the Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V. (VDMA). The winners will be awarded at the World Congress on Engineering & Design 2018 in London on November 21st / 22nd, 2018.
