The winners of the GNT Young Scientist Award 2016 have been selected: at the 30th EFFoST International Conference in Vienna, Austria, from 28-30 November, Martijn Weterings of Wageningen University, the Netherlands, came out top with his pioneering research on the dynamic measuring and modelling of aroma release during food processing. Further prizes for second and third place were given to Ulrike van der Schaaf, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, and Susanne Struck, Technical University of Dresden, Germany. Van der Schaaf stood out with her research on the formulation of soft drinks, analysing how ingredient interactions influence the morphology and stability of beverage emulsions.
