Babies, the Swedish Prince Carl Philip, research and myself

Stefan Johansson


Two years ago, I wrote about a large project that I initiated with another colleague and a "premiee"-parent, "Small child foundation" (Swe. Lilla barnet fond). The idea was to create a nation-wide charity foundation for research about newborn babies and their future health. Similar to March of Dimes. The "Lilla barnets fond" was officially founded late 2008, and since then we have worked hard (as volunteers) with strategic issues, including fund-raising and PR.

This is a follow-up report with royal gossip! :)

Yesterday we achieved a major milestone. The Swedish Prince Carl Philip, the official patron/protector of Lilla barnets fond, handed over the first research grants to the research projects, which were top-ranked by the foundation's scientific committee. In total, the researchers recieved 260.000 SEK (about 27500 EUR / 38000 USD).

After the meeting, I and a few other board members met up with Prince Carl Philip and informed about our future ideas. Prince Carl Philip was very interested of neonatal care issues! He even wanted to be specifically involved in a future campaign...

Picture? Here! And here!
