Houska Prize 2014

The Houska Prize (Houskapreis)—Austria’s largest private award for applied sciences research—is the latest in a string of celebrated recognitions for outstanding achievements in mycotoxin research at BIOMIN.

In the latest acknowledgement for pioneering research in mycotoxins at BIOMIN, the Vienna-based B&C Foundation has awarded the first place in the Houska Prize for the fumonisin-degrading enzyme FUMzyme®. The Foundation awarded the prize to “the BOKU Vienna project”—in reference to the joint BIOMIN-BOKU mycotoxins research—as the project “stood out with a highly topical scientific concept” while offering “a prime example of successful cooperation between (academic) research and corporate partnership”.
