Villum Investigator celebration at Aarhus University

From Thomas Bjørnholm, Executive Chief Scientific Officer at VILLUM FONDEN (THE VELUX FOUNDATIONS)

Diversity is key for creative research environments focusing on tough challenges🌍 That’s why it is awesome to celebrate new inspiration to the Danish universities coming from Italy and Germany via top international careers: Anja-Verena Mudring and Milena Corredig will inspire students and colleagues in Aarhus University with exciting science and technology. Both work with facets of green technologies. Anja in chemistry. Milena in food science. In the spring they were awarded Villum Investigator grants – today we celebrated them.
