The Letten Foundation , the Young Academy of Norway  and Centre for Development and the Environment have joined forces and established the Letten Prize. The first prize was awared to Indian legal scholar Tarunabh Khaitan 13 September 2018.

The purpose of the prize ‘is to recognize younger researchers’ contributions in the fields of health, development, environment and equality in all aspects of human life’. Furthermore, ‘the prize aims to raise public awareness of how research can be used to solve global human development challenges’ (from the statutes). The Letten Seminar, hosted in connection with the prize ceremony, is particularly dedicated to the latter. Read more about the initiators’ vision for the prize here.

The next call for applications will be in 2020.
