Several awards were attributed to the work presented by scientists (young researchers/teachers, PhD, Post-doc) for their positive contribution to the progress and quality of research, to the development of new concepts or techniques, aiming at improving the Food sector (education, research, industry).

A team of reviewers members of the scientific and advisory committees of the conference performed the evaluation on the basis of the abstracts and the on-site posters during the conference. Announcement of the winners was given at the conference Dinner (1st September) and awards were officially attributed at the closure ceremony of the conference (2nd September at 12h30).
