Publishing high quality papers in peer-reviewed journals is a vital component in research, and EurAgEng recognised this, by adopting Biosystems Engineering as its Official Scientific Journal in 1994. In 2008, for the first time, some of the best papers published in the journal are being recognised through the EurAgEng Outstanding Paper Award.
The Awards are sponsored by the UK’s Society of Agricultural Engineers, IAgrE, which is the owner of the Journal, and will now be a feature of the biennial AgEng Conferences. They will be given to authors of outstanding papers published in Biosystems Engineering in the previous two years.
And for CIGR AgEng2016 Aarhus:

The winners were announced at the AgEng2008 Conference from a shortlist that was published in the Conference Newsletter. Bill Day, Editor-in-Chief (and Past President of EurAgEng) said, “The exercise of choosing the short list from more than 300 papers published during the previous two years proved a real challenge, but we have twelve strong papers from which the Journal’s Editorial Board have been asked to choose Award winners. I am pleased that these Awards can demonstrate to the research community the value we place on their work”. The winners were:
