We are pleased to announce the launch of a new annual prize. The Niklas Lindegårdh Memorial Student Prize is in honour of our former colleague.

We invite all MORU students to submit a poster, and if possible, to be present on the day to discuss their work and poster with MORU colleagues and staff. There will be a voting system in place for the best poster, and the winner, who will be announced at 4pm on the day, will receive a certificate, trophy and gift voucher.
