The aim of this award is to encourage small and medium-sized enterprises in the food production industry to adopt innovative knowledge – in particular latest findings from biotechnology, nanotechnology as well as information and communication technology – in order to strengthen them in the face of global competition.

The award will be presented biannually and will be assigned for the first time during the EFFoST-EHEDG conference in Dublin.

The HighTech Europe Network of Excellence was initiated by ttz Bremerhaven, as a provider of research services, and the German Institute of Food Technologies (DIL e.V.) with the objective of strengthening the European food sector in the face of global competition.
