Awards

IMS Prize for Meat Science and Technology

The international Meat Secretariat (IMS) Prize is awarded every two years at ICoMST in recognition of scientific and technological excellence among those engaged in research into red meat. The Prize winner will be announced at ICoMST and he/she will be invited to the World Meat Congress in 2018 to make a presentation about the work being recognised.

Criteria

The Prize is to be awarded for a presentation (poster or oral) concerned with red meat at ICoMST 2017 in Cork, Ireland on the 13-18th of August, 2017, by any contributor not older than 40 years of age on 31 December 2017. The official language for Prize entries is English. Only one entry per person is allowed.

The judges will put emphasis on the submission that has the most impact on either knowledge or application for the industry, or the furtherance of meat science and technology. There will be only one named winner and two runner-ups identified. 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.

The Competition

The Prize winner will be selected by a panel of internationally respected meat scientists and industry representatives with their decision announced at ICoMST in Cork, Ireland. The presentations will be evaluated and the top three contenders may be invited to give a five-minute oral presentation of their work to the judges during ICoMST.

To Enter

Those who qualify must indicate their interest on the ICoMST online short paper submission form and agree to provide their short paper to the IMS by the 30th of June, 2017. Entries will be received up to the short paper submission deadline. Submissions should be emailed to Lene Glud (lbg@teknologisk.dk). Posters and oral presentations should include the statement: IMS Prize Contender.

The Prize

The Prize winner will be presented with the Prize of 2,000 (two thousand) USD at the World Meat Congress in 2018, where he/she will make a presentation about the work being recognized.

Caveats

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 Prize winner. An individual can receive the Prize only once.

Note
One poster will be sufficient to be considered for this award and it is advisable that Presenters bring hand-out copies of their poster.  More instructions will follow over the coming weeks.
