It is Lars Berglund’s achievements in research fields such as hybrid 2D materials, conductive composite materials, materials for energy storage, and porous materials, have earned him this recognition.

Expressing his gratitude to, Lars Berglund states that receiving international recognition from fellow researchers is a rewarding experience. Lars Berglund also highlights the importance of WWSC in the role of  research.

“We have had good long-term funding through the Wallenberg Wood Science Center, which has made it easier to work with basic research questions. We chose early on to focus on materials from nanocellulose, and it turned out in retrospect to be a recipe for success,” says Lars Berglund.

The Anselme Payen Award will be presented to Lars Berglund during the American Chemical Society’s Spring National Meeting in New Orleans in 2024. As part of the award, he will receive a bronze medal and a prize sum of $3,000.
