Each year the Marcus Wallenberg Foundation arranges events for young researchers in order to stimulate collaboration, inspire research and create networking opportunities.
In 2019 the young researchers invited to the Marcus Wallenberg Prize Event in Stockholm came from eight countries: Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Norway, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. 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. The application process for 2020/2021 is now closed.
Applicants need to cover their own costs for travel and accommodation in connection to the event. For applicants from Swedish organizations the Marcus Wallenberg Foundation has found financing from separate sources.
