In 1986, Ole Rafaelsen and William Bunney were instrumental in establishing a CINP programme supporting the attendance of young scientists at the XVth CINP Congress in 1986. That programme was posthumously named the Rafaelsen Fellowship Award to honor Dr. Rafaelsen, who died in 1987.
The recipients of the award will be chosen by an international scientific jury in March 2020.
