Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
Danone Institute International has opened the 2nd Edition of the Danone International Prize for Alimentation (DIPA), jointly awarded by the Danone Institute International (DII) and the French research organization, the Fondation pour la Recherche Médicale (FRM).
The purpose of the DIPA is to encourage and support cutting edge, innovative and multidisciplinary scientific research in Alimentation, the umbrella term for sustainable eating and drinking practices that contribute to the health of individuals, including food choice, purchase, preparation, cooking and meal organisation, and their determinants.
The award is intended to raise the profile of a mid-career researcher and accelerate his/her career, as well as help develop knowledge on the topic and inspire junior researchers and will recognise the work of a single researcher, or a representative of a research team, who is leading a pioneering and collaborative approach in Alimentation.
The 2020 DIPA will be awarded at the 22nd International Congress of Nutrition (ICN) in September 2021 that will take place in Tokyo, Japan. The President of the Prize Committee, the President of the Jury, a representative of FRM and a representative of Danone Institute International will award the Prize. The Laureate must be present at the Prize award ceremony and give a lecture about his/her scientific research work. The Laureate will participate actively in the communications associated with the award and in the preparation of the lecture during the award ceremony.
Since the last edition in 2016, the Danone International Prize for Alimentation (DIPA) has evolved from the former Danone International Prize for Nutrition. The change is in recognition of the need for innovative and collaborative approaches that take account of the diverse influences on people’s food choices and eating habits – including economic, social, psychological, environmental and cultural factors – collectively known as “Alimentation”.
