Masters students in Innovation receive Sten A Olsson Foundation scholarship for 2014


The Sten A Olsson Foundation yearly assigns 1 000 000 SEK towards scholarships to master’s students during their thesis writing. The scholarship allows students to visit international universities and to create their own international network whilst working on a research based master thesis. The recipients of the scholarship should operate within the foundation’s prioritized research areas, Culture and Health as well as Innovation and Entrepreneurship.

This year two of the scholarships went to students from the Innovation and Industrial Management programme.
