Cathrine Holst receives Burgen Scholarship Award
Cathrine Holst has been awarded the Burgen Scholarship from the Academia Europaea.
The award is given to early stage scholars at the post-doctoral level, who are either just embarking on a career of scholarship, or who are only recently established in a post dedicated to research and learning and who show great potential in their respective fields.
Holst has been nominated by the Norwegian members of the Academia Europaea. A panel of scholars review all nominations and recommend the awards.
The Burgen scholarships are named in honour of the academy's founding President, Professor Sir Arnold Burgen FRS.
