On Thursday 7 May, The King presented scholarships from the King Carl XVI Gustaf 50th Anniversary Fund for Science, Technology and the Environment to 14 researchers.
The recipients received their scholarships from The King in the Bernadotte Library at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.
After the scholarship presentations, Professor Walker Smith – one of this year's recipients of the King Carl XVI Gustaf Guest Professorship of Environmental Science – gave a lecture. Each year, the professorship is awarded to a prominent foreign researcher who can contribute towards the renewal of Swedish environmental science. Two professorships were awarded for 2014/15: Professor Raymond Pierrehumbert and Professor Walker Smith.
