The Future Faculty is proud to present the 2018 Minerva Award to Pia Sundgren, professor at the department of clinical sciences.

The Minerva award selection committee's motivation for the choice is: 

“Pia is an internationally acknowledged successful professor. Even though she has reached a high impact and powerful position, she has not let go of her high moral standards and ambition to be fair, honest and respectful towards her colleagues. She has taken on challenging tasks and positions, where she had to be assertive and make hard decisions, and has managed this with excellence, trying to be as honest and fair as possible.”

The award was presented to Prof. Sundgren at the award ceremony on the 13th of June 2018. Prof. Sundgren gave an excellent motivational talk about mentorship and her experiences as a leader. Congratulations Prof. Sundgren!!
