See pictures of new Minister Sofie and Princess Mary at elite researcher awards

Our photographer Emma Flokstra Nielsson was there when Crown Princess Mary and the new Minister for Higher Education and Science awarded this year’s Eliteforsk research award

The awards were given to five researchers under the age of 45, including Morten Broberg from the Faculty of Law at the University of Copenhagen for his work in establishing ‘international development law’ as a field of study.

According to, Morten Broberg’s research deals with the legal challenges and dilemmas related to matters such as relief, trade and legal reforms in developing economies.

Four University of Copenhagen PhD students were also awarded EliteForsk travel scholarships.

The EliteForsk award carries with it a DKK 1.2 million prize. Broberg hopes to be able to use the money for further research into practical solutions which developing countries will be able to use in dealing with the challenges they face, writes.
