- Patents or patent applications
- Books or book chapters
- Presentations at conferences
- Public dissemination of hydrocolloid-related topics
- Any other notable contributions to the field of hydrocolloids.
Particularly favourable consideration will be given to practical applications of fundamental scientific understanding.
The need to avoid disclosure of patent applications or other confidential information included in the submission will be scrupulously respected.
The call for nominations will be announced in due course. Nominations may be submitted by anyone familiar with the work of the nominee, whose prior consent must be obtained. Self-nominations will be accepted only in exceptional circumstances, which must be clearly stated and explained.
