Jutta Bolt has been named as one of the 29 new Wallenberg Academy Fellows for 2016. This prestigious Swedish research grant by the Wallenberg Foundation of approximately €1mln will allow Jutta Bolt to devote more time to her research, in part at Lund University. The goal of the research is to gain a better understanding of population trends in Africa before 1950, to better understand those countries' development in this early period and also to allow for better predictions of future population growth.
