RASE Science and Technology Award

The RASE Science and Technology Award was launched in 2022, to further promote the outstanding research and innovation that is enabling transformative change with the agri-food sector.

It was first presented to Professor Simon Pearson from the Lincoln Institute of Agri-food Technology in 2022, then to Professor Rob Edwards in 2023.

The award evolved from two previous awards – the Research Award and the Technology Award. The Research Award was introduced in 1954, when the Council approved the introduction of a medal for research work of outstanding merit, carried out in the UK, which was proven or likely to be of benefit to agriculture. The Technology Award recognised those who, working in a commercial environment, applied scientific advance into technology through the development of a product or process.
