Ternryds utmärkelse 2018
Det är makarna Ternryds utmärkelse som Forskningsstiftelsen delar ut vartannat år. 2018 var det för andra gången. Linnéuniversitetet fick lika stor andel, 400 000 sek, som rektor Peter Aronsson tog emot, för att trä och byggteknik under kommande år ska utveckla ett samarbete med Dr Simon Aicher.
Motiveringen är: Dr Aicher has contributed with significant research in the field of modern timber engineering closely related to activities at Linnaeus University (LnU), in particular building technology using modern engineered wood-based products.
He is acknowledged as a prime expert for adhesive and bonding issues of wood. Dr Aicher is internationally considered as one of the leading experts regarding standardization, quality management and scientific development in glued structural elements and structural adhesives. He is also well recognized for his work on development of non-destructive testing methods for timber, especially ultrasound burst localization and ultrasound shear-wave reflection methods for detection of glue-line defects.
During his energetic leadership the institute has gained outstanding world-wide recognition in the field of timber engineering. He has moreover initiated, contributed and led numerous national and international research and cooperation works, been awarded patents and authored more than 250 scientific papers.

Motivering: Prof. Dr. Holger Militz is one of the leading researches worldwide in developing innovative wood modification technologies. He has contributed with significant research in forestry industry areas closely related to activities at Linnaeus University, in particular wood processing. His research achievements the last 25 years in the wood modification area has brought many of the technologies towards industrial upscaling. Holger Militz is especially recognized for his work on development of innovative wood product using polymer integration, and investigations of plasma treatment of wood.
