Kristoffer Bäckström, PhD student in economics at Luleå University of Technology, has been awarded Norrbottensakdemiens economic prize.

– It's great to receive a recognition for the hard work I have put into the essay and that it is appreciated. The prize is clearly a motivating factor for the future. My next step is to shorten and revise the essay to submit it to a journal during the winter, says Kristoffer Bäckström.
