50,000 SEK in Prizes for Reports completed by 30 of November 2011
on the Nuclear Waste Issue for students at Uppsala University
and/or the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala
 
The Swedish Environmental Movement’s Nuclear Waste Secretariat (Miljörörelsens kärnavfallssekretariat, Milkas) will award 50,000 SEK in prizes to students for reports on the nuclear waste issue successfully completed as part of a course of study at Uppsala University and/or the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences in Uppsala.
 
Winners will be determined by a jury selected by the Milkas board, which is made up of representatives of the national anti-nuclear group The Swedish Anti-nuclear Movement (www. folkkampanjen.se, Folkkampanjen mot kärnkraft-kärnvapen, FMKk) and Friends of the Earth, Sweden (www.mjv.se, Miljöförbundet Jordens Vänner, MJV), the Swedish branch of Friends of the Earth International.
 
Reports must be submitted to Milkas by e-mail to info@milkas.se on 30 November 2011 at the latest. Notice of intent to apply, including an outline of the work intended to be completed, should be submitted to Milkas as soon as possible by e-mail to info@milkas.se though on 31 October 2011 at the latest. This is to allow time for Milkas to ensure the proper competence is available within the jury. Winners will be announced as soon as possible after 30 November 2011.
 
Reports must be of relevance to the government review process on dealing with management of irradiated nuclear fuel in Sweden. Examples of topics include location to put the waste, method used, the decision making process, and health and environmental impacts. Work that is interdisciplinary in nature will be given priority.
 
The purpose of the prize is to encourage research independent from the nuclear industry. Students combining studies with employment in the nuclear industry are however welcome to apply.
 
Documentation from winning reports will be published on www.nonuclear.se and distributed to the actors in Sweden on the nuclear waste issue within government, the nuclear industry and civil society.
 
The prize sum includes costs for any taxes incurred.
