Our second year Swedish student Herman (left in photograph) has been awarded 1st Prize in the Young Scientists Competition 2018 for humanities research. The title of his research is ‘An Investigation of the Economic Consequences of Immigration’.

The central question he investigates is how immigration influences salary levels in Sweden. The question was addressed by sending out a questionnaire to employment offices. One finding is that development has been less positive for those with a low salary than those with a high. The Norwegian research Council has honoured Herman with a special prize, which is to participate at the London International Youth Science Forum in London this summer.

Congratulations Herman!
