Nomination Criteria for Fellows

  • Nominations for election as Fellows may be made by:
    • Adhering Bodies
    • Fellows of the International Academy
  • To be eligible for election as a Fellow, a person must be generally recognized as having established an outstanding reputation for scientific accomplishments and/or leadership in the area of food science and technology.
  • A maximum of 30 new Fellows per congress period may be elected by the International Academy. The elections take place prior to each World Congress. At the time of nomination, candidates must be active though not necessarily employed. The names of the Academy Fellows are shown in a list on the Academy Fellows page.
  • Before sending in the nomination form, please ascertain that the nominee:
  1. Understands the requirements for Fellow;
  2. Undertakes to complete a nominee’s form;
  3. Understands that this is not a selection/rejection process, but a democratic election in which the voters are the existing Fellows; and
  4. A maximum of 30 Fellows are elected by the Academy biennially
  • In completing the form, please be aware that scientific accomplishments may be achieved in various fields allied to food science and technology and not just academic research; and that “and/or leadership” criteria is intended to provide an alternative to scientific accomplishments which may have been demonstrated in various contexts.
  • Nominations may be made by any eligible nominator (as above) and the nominations are not restricted to the country of the nominator. Nominations are welcome for all eligible individuals, regardless of professional status or position, such as government agency, private enterprise, or academic institution.
