Award ceremony


Due to the current coronavirus situation, the senior management team has decided to cancel the award ceremony scheduled for 27 May 2020. At the moment, it does not appear either possible or appropriate to invite guests to an event in May. Postponing the event to a later date is not an option.

This year’s recipient of the Rigmor and Carl Holst-Knudsen Award for Scientific Research will be announced in connection with Aarhus University’s annual celebration on 11 September 2020. The award will also be conferred on this occasion. Each year, the award is conferred on a researcher who has achieved the highest level of academic distinction and international recognition.

This year's five recipients of the Aarhus University Research Foundation's PhD award will be announced here on the 4th of June. We will publish profiles and presentation videos about the winners and their research, in addition to a celebratory address by the rector.
