Science & SciLifeLab Prize Symposium 2023

December 12 @ 09:00 13:30 CET

Welcome to the Scientific Symposium presenting the winners of the 2023 Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists.

Science, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and SciLifeLab joined forces in 2013, creating the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists to recognize excellence amongst young researchers from around the world. A global Prize aimed at rewarding scientists at an early stage of their careers, this year celebrating its 10th anniversary.

The Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists is an international prize, awarded annually to four young scientists for outstanding life science research based on a doctoral degree earned in the previous two years.The grand prize-winning essay will be published in Science, and essays from the three category winners will be published in online issue.

All four winners of the Science & SciLifeLab Prize for Young Scientists are invited to Sweden December 9-14 to participate in a unique week filled with events in honor of science. They will have the opportunity to meet with leading scientists in their field of research and create life-long connections to support their careers.
