Danone Institute International opens the 2nd Edition of the Danone International Prize for Alimentation (DIPA). The prestigious prize for Alimentation to mid-career Researchers opens the Call for Applications until October, 16, 2020.
Since the last edition in 2017, 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”.
The DIPA is being opened to mid-career emerging leaders in the field, rewarding pioneering research that spans multiple disciplines and represents a major advance in Alimentation.
