Research Funding: Wallenberg Grants to Karin Schönning and Agnese Bissi


Agnese Bissi, Theoretical Physics and Karin Schönning, Nuclear Physics, both have been prolonged as Wallenberg Academy Fellows for another five years. Karin Schönning also has been promoted to Wallenberg Scholar.

Agnese Bissi and Karin Schönning were appointed Wallenberg Academy Fellows in 2016. The program, which is the largest private investment in young researchers in Sweden, gives young researchers long-term resources to be able to engage in their research and to an increased internationalisation of the Swedish research environment. After the first period’s end there is the possibility of further support during five years, which now both Agnese Bissi and Karin Schönning have received.

The program Wallenberg Academy Fellows was established by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in close collaboration with five royal academies and 16 Swedish universities in 2012.
