NMBU's PhD student Hannah Harrison has been awarded the German Green Talents Award. She is one of 25 up-and-coming scientists selected from 602 applicants from all over the world. This year’s focus is on “Sustainable Production and Consumption”.

PhD student awarded "Green Talents Award"

Hannah Harrison is developing a holistic picture of conflicts in the discourse about small-scale voluntary salmon hatcheries. She intends to identify underlying drivers of conflict for more sustainable salmon fisheries management. Research focus: researching innovative cultivation techniques for sustainable production of endangered freshwater fish species in Europe. 

Sustainability of salmon conservation
The jury acknowledged the valuable insights and findings Hannah brings to the development of sustainable salmon conservation issues. Her research about the Atlantic salmon fish stock is closely related to the sustainability of salmon conservation in Germany and highlights the need for policies that have been developed through collaborative research practises and stakeholder engagement.

Patronaged by the German Research Minister
The Green Talents Award honours talented young researchers and is being conferred under the patronage of the German Research Minister, Professor Johanna Wanka, for the ninth time. The award provides young researchers with a platform for sharing their views on green concepts to make our world a better place. The awardees recieve a ticket to the “Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development”, a two-week science tour providing insights into the German research landscape and with the opportunity to meet leading experts and visit some of the most renowned research institutions in the focus area. Their efforts are supported by an invitation to return to Germany in 2018 for a fully funded research stay at an institution of their choice.
