The Danisco Award 2007 goes to Professor Niels Christian Nielsen of the University of Aarhus. He receives the Award along with DKK 250,000 for his strong international research profile, particularly in food-related issues and his huge efforts to establish the NanoFood consortium.
Some may wonder why Niels Christian Nielsen was chosen as this year's award winner, since his research has focused on areas other than food.
His research covers nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, and as Director of the Danish National Research Foundation's Center for Insoluble Protein Structures he develops methods for structural and functional analysis of membrane proteins, fibrils and protein aggregates. The centre is closely integrated with the nanoscience centre iNANO and the NanoFood consortium, where he worked hard to establish a research platform for the food area.
The award is an acknowledgement of his introduction of advanced, scientific and entirely new methods of characterisation and measuring of food components as well as food intake in living organisms.
Niels Christian Nielsen's work is proof that research institutions and the corporate sector can mutually benefit from each other.
Through a partnership on nanotechnology with Danisco's scientists at Brabrand, Denmark, a bridge has been built between universities and industry with a grant from the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation. This is important work to the mutual benefit of both parties, which will eventually be of value to society as a whole.
The Award was presented at the annual congress of the Centre for Advanced Food Studies on 20 September at Bella Center.
