Danisco Foundation awards four student grants

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt/Main, ) The Danisco Foundation today awards four student grants - two general grants of DKK 50,000 each and two travel grants of DKK 25,000 each. The recipients are Abida Sultan, Witold Kot, Marcel Claude Pinnerup and Peter Claris Andreasen, all of which are about to write their theses on food science and biotechnology at the University of Copenhagen or the Technical University of Denmark.

'The grants are intended to help the students complete their theses in the best way possible. Another objective is to enhance the interaction between Danisco and food and biotech students. Many of these students could have a future at Danisco,' says Senior Manager Lisbeth Munksgaard, Danisco A/S.

For several years, the Danisco Foundation has also granted the Danisco Award to a scientist or business keenly committed to improving the quality of food.

This year, the grants are awarded to students engaged in the molecular understanding of lactic acid bacteria activity in dairy products and the quality improvement of meat products.

Each year, food and biotech students at the universities under the Centre for Advanced Food Studies can apply for grants to complete their final theses.

The grants will be presented at an award ceremony today at Danisco's head office in Copenhagen.
