Jonas Cederlöf

The award committee praised the thesis for excelling "in both areas that we focused on: technical quality of the research and policy relevance. The committee was particularly impressed with [the] work on the consequences of worker dislocation and qualities that make for good case workers."

-I am very happy and truly honoured to even be considered for the Upjohn award. A lot of time and effort has been put into this thesis so it is always fun when somebody recognises your work. At the same time I would have to point out that even though I stand as the recipient of this prize, I share it with all of my co-authors who have contributed tremendously to making the thesis to what it became, says Jonas Cederlöf.
