Earlier this year, the Olav Thon Foundation announced in a press release that bioCEED’s project “Numerical competence and student-active research” was attributed a national teaching-related research grant of NOK 1.4 million (see article). The project, led by Sigrunn Eliassen, Øystein Varpe and Jonathan Soulé, aims at developing and extending the learning platform bioST@TS with quantitative methods and tools, and will support student participation in research programs that train these numerical skills.

On March 2nd, the 2017 winners of the academic awards and grants were invited to the annual ceremony of the Olav Thon Foundation at the University Aula in Oslo. During the ceremony, Sigrunn Eliassen and Jonathan Soulé received the diploma from Olav Thon’s hands.

Among this year’s winners were also Anne-Berit Guttormsen from the Department of Clinical Medicine, UiB (national award for excellence in education), and Lars A. Akslen and Elisabeth Wik from the Centre for Cancer Biomarkers, UiB (national teaching-related research grant).

In 2016, three professors from the Department of Biology, UiB were awarded by the Olav Thon Foundation. Both Karin Pittman and Christian Jørgensen received national awards for excellence in education, while Anne Gro V. Salvanes received a national teaching-related research grant (see article).
