The recipients and award citations:
Professor Paul Barklem from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Uppsala University, for his vital contributions to the field of astronomical spectroscopy, and particularly in the calculation of important atomic cross sections.
Professor Mattias Jakobsson from the Department of Organismal Biology at Uppsala universitet, for having enhanced understanding of human evolution.
