A seminar to honour the Mohn Prize laureate and discuss topics within Prof. Youngs research and contributions to society.
The Steering Committee for The Mohn Prize has the pleasure to invite everyone to a seminar honouring Professor Oran Young. And we are pleased to have an excellent list of speakers and contributors of highly relevant people from the science and policy communities, both internationally and nationally. Through a mix of shorter presentations, panels and discussions we want to bring Prof. Young's research and contributions to a broader research community, and also discuss the way forward.
