2020-03-16

Five members of the university’s staff have been awarded the Elder Gustaf Adolf Medal for extraordinarily significant works. Peter Wallenberg, chair of the board of the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, has been appointed an honorary member of Uppsala University.

The Elder Gustaf Adolf Medal is also known as the Hedlinger Medal, after its engraver Johann Carl Hedlinger. The gold or silver medal is awarded to individuals who have served very long terms as dean, to department heads who have initiated and directed extraordinarily significant work and to individuals who have performed highly important work on an inquiry or similar commission of significant scope or long duration.

Kristina Edström, professor in Organic Chemistry, receives the Elder Gustaf Adolf Medal for excellent contribution to research, education and leadership. Motivation is as follows:

Professor Kristina Edström, professor in inorganic chemistry, is an internationally renowned battery researcher. She has occupied a number of management positions including vice-dean of the Faculty of Educational Sciences, dean of the Section of Chemistry, member of the University Board, vice-dean for research at the Faculty of Science and Technology, advisor to the vice-chancellor on first-cycle studies and, currently, advisor to the vice-chancellor on infrastructure issues. Professor Nihlfors has also served as head of the research programme STandUP for Energy and been a member of the boards of the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research and Maxlab. She has demonstrated great skill in her leadership.

A big applause and congratulations from all of us at the Section of Chemistry!
