Unilever Research Prize 2018 for KLV member Martijn van Galen BSc

Following a longstanding tradition, Unilever R&D Vlaardingen presented the Unilever Research Prizes for the 62nd time on 27 November 2018.

Unilever asked the universities in The Netherlands to nominate their best Master students - those who have done excellent work on topics that are relevant to one or more Sustainable Development Goals. All 13 Dutch universities have put forward one of their top Master of Science students.

The Unilever Research Prizes allow Unilever to show their appreciation for excellent work from this year’s talented academics who stand out from the crowd. Unilever wishes to stimulate these promising talents in their future development by granting these prizes.

All 13 winners of the Unilever Research Prize received a cheque of € 2,500, accompanied with a glass object ‘The Ovum’, a sculpture giving the impression of a hatching bird’s egg, symbolizing the birth and emergence of new talent.

WUR student and KLV member Martijn van Galen was one of the winning students.
