Awards and grants
ISRHML awards, such as the Macy-György Award and the Ehrlich-Koldovsky Award, are important in that they recognize the achievements of individuals conducting research related to human milk and lactation. The selection process for these awards must be completely devoid of commercial influence.
ISRHML grants for research, educational or other activities, such as the Trainee Support Programme, might be sponsored by commercial or other entities. These grants should bear the name of ISRHML while the sponsor’s name may be linked to the name of the program.
The selection committee that awards the awards and grants will be defined in the ISRHML bylaws or by executive committee decision. The procedure to select individuals for awards and grants should be completely transparent and independent from commercial interests.
