Food researcher appointed honorary doctor

????Professor Klaus G. Grunert has been awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Vaasa in Finland

- It is the highest academic distinction that a researcher can gain, apart from the Nobel Prize, so of course, I’m very proud to be able to write “Honorary Doctor” on my business card, says Klaus G. Grunert.

According to the nomination committee, the reason for the appointment as Honorary Doctor is that Klaus G. Grunert has managed to combine a strong, scientific approach with close cooperation with the business community.

This particular bridge building between researchers and business activities characterises the work of the Finnish University of Vaasa.
