Vice-Chancellor Mårten Carlsson’s Award
In 1995, SLU instituted Vice-Chancellor Mårten Carlsson’s Award as a homage to Professor Mårten Carlsson and his work as vice-chancellor of SLU 1982-1994.
The award “rewards excellent efforts that have promoted dialogue between society, business and SLU”.
The award is given to people working at and outside SLU. In order for an SLU employee to receive the award, they must have contributed efforts outside of their ordinary duties. The prize money of SEK 50,000 is awarded every other year in connection with the doctoral degree award ceremony in autumn.
