One word of the 2016 laureate:
In November 2016, Lena Maria Nilsson, who won the grant, went to Paris to meet her colleagues and develop new cooperation with French researchers. Very pleased with her stay, here are her impressions:
Lena Maria Nilsson in front of the Swedish Institute in Paris, November 2016.
« Thanks to the Eva De la Gardie residence I had the opportunity to meet my French research colleagues face-to-face, which led to fruitful discussions on current and future research. My general impression of the French research bodies I visited was a warm and welcoming atmosphere. This one month stay in Paris also gave me a deeper understanding of French university culture, which is important for future collaborations. Finally, I must also acknowledge time for relaxation, attending cultural events and improving my cultural and language skills in French. »
