At the annual CBS Award ceremony, Sofie Elbæk Henriksen, PhD Fellow at MSC, was presented with the Fonnesbech PhD Award 2023.
The Award, which was given to Sofie Elbæk Henriksen in recognition of both her ‘ability to publish high-quality research in international top journals, as well as her potential for conducting research with significant societal and academic impact’ and her demonstration of ‘a remarkable interdisciplinarity and ability to publish in a wide range of disciplines’, was presented in collaboration with the Fonnesbech Foundation and CBS.
