The Nor-Feed Award is an initiative of the company Nor-Feed, rewarding a veterinarian thesis (or a thesis of veterinary interest) dealing with the functional properties of characterized plants, plant extracts or plant-derived products and their applications in animal health and/or production. The contest is open to young scientists from around the world and is endowed with a prize of € 5.000 (around US $ 6.000).
The Jury, composed of one Nor-Feed senior scientist and two other independent academics, will award the prize in September 2015 according to the relevance of the thesis and the accurate characterization of the plant(s) and its (their) properties. The laureate will be notified by email and will receive the practical details of the prize-giving ceremony. The Jury's verdict will not be discussed. In addition, the Jury may award a second "special" prize if another thesis holds its attention. The results will be announced no later than three months after the closing date for submission of the thesis.
The thesis must have been defended after January, the 1st, 2010.
