The Elite Research Conference 2016

Tuesday, February 25th

Crown Princess Mary attended the presentation of Elite Research Conference 2016, hereat Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen.


After the family's vacation in December, we haven't really seen that much of her. Before the vacation we shared her experiences almost every day. That seems quite some time ago now. Usually, the Crown Prince family is also going skiing in Verbiér around this time a year, but it is not the case this year. No official messages have been given, so I can't tell for sure what's the reason. I guess it is because they just arrived home from a whole month abroad.

But now the Crown Princess is back at work. She attended the presentation of the Elite Research Conference as guest of honor. She was also present to hand over awards to some of the most talented scientists in Denmark, who have contributed in an unrivaled way with their research. It was around noon when she arrived to Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in the center of Copenhagen. The Crown Princess was in an excellent mood. She was welcomed by Minister of Research Esben Lunde Larsen, who also accompanied her on stage later on. Speeches were given and recent research results were presented, closely followed by everyone in the room including the Crown Princess.
The winners of the Elite Research Award 2016 are -David Dreyer Lassen (Professor of political economy at the Department of Economics at the University of Copenhagen), Peter Lodahl (Professor of physics at the Niels Bohr Institute at Copenhagen University), Liv Hornekær (Associate professor of physics at the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Aarhus University), Petar Popovski (Professor of communications at the Department of Electronic Systems at Aalborg University) and Mette Rams Thomsen (Professor of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation). Congratulations to all of them with the prestigious award. Each of the five award winners are also given DKK 1,2 million. DKK 200,000 is a personal reward; the rest goes to reserach activities.

For this event I had not idea what to expect of her look. Previous years she has worn darker colours because of the rather cold weather. Last year she appeared in a black leather dress, so this year she could be wearing anything really, here. No leather dress this time. Instead Mary dazzled in her navy blue Elise Gug (Collection: Autumn/Winter 2014) suit. It is around two years since she wore the suit last. It was when she attended the Gender Equality and Empowerment of Women and Girls for Sustainable Development in the ECE Region in Geneva, here. Mary embraced a chic style with stunning golden jewellery from Marianne Dulong, Georg Jensen and Ole Lynggaard Copenhagen -three incredible Danish designers. To mention one of the pieces, then the brooch is rather interesting. Worn on a couple of occasions before, for instance in Australis in 2011, here, it has never really been identified for sure. It's told to be from Marianne Dulong. At the arrival she showed of a brand new scarf, in almost the exact same colour as her suit, featuring large black dots and tassels. Not yet found I hope to get your help with this one. I see a label, but can't read what it says. Looks similar to another scarf of hers. With help from Kate, I am able to share that Mary stunned in new Gianvito Rossi pumps. Simply elegant design. Just like the pumps, she had chosen a natural coloured clutch from Naledi Copenhagen. This model is a bit bigger in size than the one she usually wears.
