The Letten Prize

Call for applications for the Letten Prize 2023
The call for applications for the Letten Prize 2023 is now open. The application deadline is February 6th, 2023.

The Letten Prize
The purpose of the prize ‘is to recognize younger researchers’ contributions in the fields of health, development, environment and equality in all aspects of human life’. Furthermore, ‘the prize aims to raise public awareness of how research can be used to solve global human development challenges’. The Letten Seminar, hosted in connection with the prize ceremony, is particularly dedicated to the latter. Read more about the initiators’ vision for the prize here.
