Søren Stobbe awarded the 2017 SCIENCE Business Prize

24 May 2017

38-year-old Associate Professor Søren Stobbe of the University of Copenhagen’s Niels Bohr Institute has been awarded  the 2017 SCIENCE Business Prize by the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Science. Søren Stobbe received the award for successfully conducting commercially-oriented research while inspiring his students to do the same. Likewise, 35-year-old Assistant Professor Mads Fiil Hjorth of the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports and 35-year-old Postdoc Svend Roesen Madsen of the Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences received the Business Prize for Young Researchers. They received their awards for conducting research in commercial contexts while inspiring others.  The 2017 SCIENCE Business Prize is worth 75,000 Danish kroner – the largest sum for a UCPH award, while the two business-minded younger researchers shared the second prize, each being awarded 37,500 kroner towards their future work.
