Announcement of Gunnar Öquist Fellows 2016, Umeå, Sweden

On Thursday 3 December at 14:00, the Kempe Foundations will announce this year's Gunnar Öquist Fellows in Stora hörsalen in the KBC Building. The awardees will give a short presentation of their research projects. Everyone interested is welcome to join the ceremony and mingle afterwards.

The award includes a SEK3 million research grant, which may be used freely for three years, and SEK 50,000 as personal funding.

Professor Gunnar Öquist, Umeå University's perhaps most internationally renowned scientist, has lent his name and will mentor the selected persons. Thanks to his long-standing work at the Royal Academy of Sciences and his many contacts with Nobel Laureates, he has valuable experience in cutting-edge research, which may benefit the awardee.

This is the fourth consecutive year for researchers to be appointed Gunnar Öquist Fellows. The Kempe Foundations have decided to appoint a Fellow both at Umeå University and at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Umeå this year.

Everyone is welcome to join the ceremony.

Time: Thursday, 3 December at 14:00 Place: Stora hörsalen, KB3B1, KBC Building
