The researcher who has developed the most during the year in the areas of interest, engagement, networking and insights into how to commercialise research results will receive a scholarship of SEK100,000.

All of the finalists will give a brief presentation about the beginning of their commercialisation journey. A jury will select the scholarship winner using the criteria above and the audience will vote for the finalist with the best presentation.

We will also show a short film with interviews of Mentor4Research Alumni talking about their experiences of the programme.
