Prize event week

Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists


Award ceremony and banquet
The four winners of Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists are recognized and celebrated at the award ceremony in Stockholm. It is set in the exclusive Hall of Mirrors at the Grand Hotel – the original venue of the Nobel prize banquet (1901- 1929). At the event, they will meet with e.g. leading researchers, representatives from sponsoring organizations and fellow award-winning young scientists.




Scientific program
The winners will partake in a series of scientific events, including a symposium coordinated by SciLifeLab. Presentations by the awardees are complemented with a lecture by the editor-in-chief of Science magazine. In addition, SciLifeLab will offer a tour of its facilities and give the prize winners an opportunity to learn more about this national center and its technological facilities for high-throughput molecular biosciences.



Social events
The social program includes e.g. a dinner hosted by Science/AAAS, where the winners of Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists – and their plus-ones – get to interact with each others, with editors of Science magazine, as well as with the  management of SciLifeLab.
