Nathalie De Cock, a researcher at the University of Ghent, has won the Alpro Foundation Award for best publication for her study. She is receiving this award for her publication "Adding a reward increases the reinforcing value of fruit" which was part of the REWARD project. De Cock studied how the reinforcing value of fruit can be increased for adolescents and therefore, how rewarding desirable behaviour can lead to behavioural change. It is important to increase the reinforcing value of healthy nutrition, as a way of improving the dietary habits of adolescents. The study was published in the British Journal of Nutrition.

Researchers at MedUni Vienna's Department of Emergency Medicine have now shown for the first time via a retrospective study of a large collective of data from more than 500 patients that the heart rate measurable by ECG can be used to predict survival in the case of PEA.
