The Carl Wilhelm Brabender Award was established to honor the distinguished contributions to the application of rheology in milling and baking. Sponsored jointly by C.W. Brabender Instruments, Inc. (South Hackensack, NJ) and Brabender OHG (Duisberg, Germany), the award is presented every three years and is administered alternately by the Cereals & Grains Association and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Getreideforschung (Detmold, Germany). The award provides a plaque and a travel grant to enable the recipient to visit scientists and laboratories in other parts of the world to increase the awardee's knowledge and experience in the field.
