OTTO HUTZINGER STUDENT AWARDS
The Otto HUTZINGER Student Awards are presented for outstanding student presentations at the annual Dioxin Symposium to acknowledge their scientific contribution to the field of halogenated persistent organic pollutants (POPs). This award honours Professor Otto HUTZINGER as the founder of the Dioxin Symposia and his continuing interest as a teacher and researcher committed to moving science forward and to stimulating young students and the next generation of researchers. In total, six awards will be granted to students, two in each of the following three categories:
Sources and analysis of legacy and emerging POPs.
Environmental occurrence of halogenated POPs.
Human exposure, toxicology and risk assessment of POPs.
The Otto HUTZINGER Student Awards will be presented by the International Advisory Board of the Dioxin Symposia on Friday September 4th, 2020. The award consists of a plaque reflecting a local aspect of the current year’s Dioxin Symposium as well as an honorarium. The winners’ names will be published on the Symposium’s website dedicated page
after the event.
