Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize for Agriculture and Food

Agropolis Fondation created the Louis Malassis International Scientific Prize for Agriculture and Food which aims to recognize individuals for their exemplary and promising contribution in promoting agricultural innovation through research, development and capacity building in the North, South or in the Mediterranean in order to improve food and agricultural systems sustainability as well as contribute to addressing food security and poverty reduction.

The Prize consists of two categories:

The recipient of the Award will receive €20,000.

Louis Malassis Young Promising Scientist Prize is given to a young individual, or a group of young scientists, who has carried out original and promising work in the field covered by the Prize. The awardee should be no more than 40 years old by 01 January 2012, hold a PhD degree and have at least five years of professional experience in the field covered by the Prize. The recipient of the Award will receive €20,000.

Candidates should be nominated by an academic or research organization (private or public), a civil society organization (e.g., NGO, farmers organizations), or a private sector group (e.g., small/medium enterprises).

An international jury constituted by the president of the Foundation will select the winners.

This Prize complements the Louis Malassis Literary Prize given by the "Association Paroles de paysans du monde".
