Nils-Eric Svensson Scholarship


In 1993, in connection with the end of his term as RJ's CEO, Nils-Eric Svensson was honoured with a scholarship fund instituted in his name.

The scholarships were meant to promote exchange between young researchers in Sweden and the rest of Europe.

Younger Swedish researchers with PhDs in RJ's focus areas were given the opportunity to stay in a prominent European research environment for a shorter period through the Nils-Eric Svensson Scholarship. Funding calls for these scholarships were announced each autumn. Recipients received SEK 100,000 each.

The scholarship was awarded a final time in 2015.
