1st of March I recieved the prize by the Norwegian Research Councils Award for Young Outstanding Researchers within Natural Sciences on my research on surfaces. The research would not have been possible without my excellent colleagues in Norway and in Spain and good collaboration. The award was mentioned in both national and international media such as Adressa , Trondheim by , Youtube , SINTEFs webpages , SINTEF blog by my boss Dr. Mølnvik , Nordic life sciences , The Norwegian American and also other webpages. I am very honored and super proud to receive this prize. The award money of 500 000 NOK will be used on further research on the topic.
