Nomination for badge of merit

Badges of merit are awarded to persons who in a prominent way have contributed to strengthening the vision of the creative and international research and knowledge environment promoting curiosity, creativity, companionship and utility at Linnaeus University.

A badge of merit is an award in the form of a diploma and an amount of SEK 25,000 that is to be used for research, skills development or other activity of significance to the awarded person’s continued development within the university’s activities. The amount is to be used by the recipient within the frame of his/her appointment after consultation with the concerned head of department.

The decision on who will receive Linnaeus University's badge of merit is made by the vice-chancellor following deliberations in the Badge of Merit Committee, which consists of the vice-chancellor and the pro-vice-chancellor.

The badges of merit will be handed out at the Academic Ceremony in Kalmarsalen on Friday, January 31, 2020.
