Each year the Marcus Wallenberg Foundation arranges events for young researchers in order to stimulate collaboration, inspire research and create networking opportunities.

Young Researchers’ Challenge 2022 – Apply now for the opportunity to network and present your research!

In connection with the event, applicants need to cover their own costs for travel and accommodation for one night, of two. International applicants are recommended to apply for funding from their own universities or other financiers. For applicants from Swedish organizations the Marcus Wallenberg Foundation has financing from the Erik Johan Ljungberg Utbildningsfond.

In 2020/2021 the young researchers invited to the Marcus Wallenberg Prize Event in Stockholm came from five countries: Austria, Belgium, Canada, Finland and Sweden. See their abstracts in the below list. Each year post docs and PhD students 35 years or younger are encouraged to apply to the Young Researchers’ Challenge by describing their own research and the impact it will have on the forest-based industry and society as a whole.
