*About Are Hjørungnes

The student travel grant has been set up in dear memories of the belated Prof. Are Hjørungnes, Norway, who has tragically died in Hawaii in May 2011 whilst on his sabbatical. He has been a much appreciated colleague and friend to many of us, and a great mentor to all students around him.
