New Young Scientist Prize developed with help of cloud based agency UP from Stockholm

UP THERE, EVERYWHERE, the global cloud based agency founded in Stockholm, Sweden, has been instrumental in helping develop the new Prize. The agency worked together with SciLifeLab in Sweden and the international journal Science to bring the new global prize for young scientists to life.

'Science has never been more exciting and, as leaders in science, we want to support and encourage young researchers today and tomorrow. This prize is a way of doing just that.' says Professor Mathias Uhlén, Director of SciLifeLab.

Julian Stubbs, CEO of UP commented 'We are very proud of being part of the team that made this prize a reality. We worked with both organisations intensively over a period of months to help establish the prize, and with UP's own strong focus in the Life Science area, it’s something we are passionate about.'
