Der 3. Rainer-Gross-Preis wurde im Rahmen des III World Congress of Public Health Nutrition am 10. November 2014 in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria an David Thurnham, UK, für seinen Beitrag zur Klärung dieser Frage verliehen.
Thank you, Erik and Noel, for the vivid reports. But a “legacy” is not reflected by memories alone. It is his curious spirit that we want to keep alive. This is the purpose of the Rainer Gross Award endowed by the “Hildegard Grunow Foundation”. Let me shortly introduce this Foundation to you. It is very small. Funded by the heritage of the late Hildegard Grunow, it was founded in 2007 by Noel Solomons, the tax-lawyer Klaus Naeve, and myself, and with that pedigree is clearly research-oriented. Its task is capacity building in the field of Third-World-Nutrition and to hatch,
test and monitor new ideas and concepts in nutrition – to serve as an “incubation aid” for new faces and concepts.
