Yesterday, Thesis Day was arranged at SLU. About 60 students exhibited their thesis at the digital poster exhibition, all with a focus on sustainability from different perspectives.

The exhibition has already had over 200 visitors and is still open. If you have not visited it yet, you find it here.

During the live closing ceremony, some of the students were invited to talk about their degree projects and SLU's vice chancellor and deputy vice chancellor gave inspiring speeches to all the graduating students.

The award for best poster went to Emily Thorselius and her poster "How can impact be assessed?".

In shared second place came Mathilda Bertills, with the poster "Who calls the African Wild dog? De novo SNP discovery and genotyping in the Lycaon pictus", and Ebba Kuylenstierna and Karin Andrén with the poster "What about perennial grains?".

The global sustainability award was awarded for the very first time and it went to Izabella Lundborg with her work on "Killer crops".
