Food4Me project wins impact award for engaging industry

7th January 2015

On 3 December 2014, the EU-funded Food4Me project was awarded an ‘Engaging Industry’ category award at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Brussels, Belgium, during an event organised by CommNet called: Building the Bioeconomy – Creating Impact through Communication: CommNet’s 3rd Bioeconomy Forum & Final ConferenceDialogues, Debates, Awards. The Food4Me project’s prize was one of four awards given out on the night to EU-funded project in the Bioeconomy that demonstrated strong communication and dissemination activities to specific stakeholder groups.

Over 170 people attended the two-day event and participated in debates about the challenges and potential of bioeconomy communication. On the final day, a representative of CommNet gave our four awards to EU Framework Programme 7 projects that have showed an excellence in communicating to European citizens, policy-makers, industry or young people – one of which was Food4Me. A panel of seven external judges reviewed and selected what they thought were the strongest candidates.

One of the award judges, Professor Ronan Gormley, who also chaired the awards ceremony said, “It’s vital that researchers do more to communicate their work to a wider audience in order to really deliver on the public funding they have received. It’s great to be involved with these awards to recognise projects who are doing this well and I hope this inspires others to reach out and communicate their research to a wider audience”.
