The Nutreco Young Researchers Prize

Launched in 2019 to mark Nutreco’s 25th anniversary, this Prize is awarded to the most promising research by PhD and post-doctorate students working globally across animal, aquaculture and veterinary sciences.

The Nutreco Young Researchers Prize (NYRP) recognises outstanding research efforts to address the increasingly important challenge of generating enough food for the world’s growing population.

The solutions to this challenge will have to be systemic and sustainable, encompassing the various different farming systems on our planet. 

The prize is for talented researchers who share our vision in unearthing new solutions for our mission of Feeding the Future. A panel of leading experts within Nutreco judge the competition submissions within three categories - precision farming, young animal nutrition, and animal health & welfare – based upon the quality of the research proposal, innovativeness, sustainability and the value to agri- and aqua-culture industry. 

“Each of these projects was chosen for its innovativeness, its value to the agricultural industries, and its sustainability as a proposal. I would like to congratulate the winners. I was astounded by the quality of research shown by the applicants, and it was with great difficulty that we narrowed down the top three winners’ projects. It’s vital that companies like ours support the work being done by excellent young researchers – they are, after all, working on projects that will help us feed the future.”
Rob Koremans, CEO Nutreco
