The 2012 Jules Tournut Probiotics Prize

EPA Supports the future of Probiotic Research and opens new horizons for sustainable animal nutrition.

On November 13th 2012, at EUROTIER tradeshow, the European Probiotic Association (EPA) awarded the Jules Tournut Probiotics Prize 2012 to Peter de Schryver, from Gent University, for his innovative research project on the use of microbial product and microorganisms in animal nutrition. The Prize was awarded in presence of members of the EPA, FEFANA, representative of the EPA Scientific Committee and journalists. Altogether, the quality and diversity of research projects submitted demonstrate that probiotics benefits go beyond zootechnical performance and pave the way for innovative applications in the field of immunity, but also stress management or even reproduction.
