Are you interested in knowing more about the exciting water research going on at SLU and would like contribute to SLU's future research on water? Welcome to a seminar where younger researchers at SLU talk about their research on water, from ecology and water chemistry to sustainable use and management, across all different types of water.
During two half days at the end of April 2022, we plan for the second water seminar at SLU where we invite both you who want to present your research, and everyone who wants to listen, broaden their perspectives and create new contacts. NOTE! Although preferentially younger researchers are invited to give presentations, we hope that as many as possible will join in, regardless of experience and background.
We hope that you all want to be involved and contribute to broaden our knowledge transfer and increase our cooperation on water at SLU.
When: 26 April 13-18 and 27 April 9-12.30, 2022. In the evening after the seminar on 26/4, we offer a poster session including mingling and networking, with snacks.
Where: At Ultuna with the possibility to join in via video. There is funding to cover traveling and housing for long-distance presenters.
Why: SLU has strong and broad expertise on water, but we are spread out across different faculties, departments and campuses. This seminar gives us the opportunity to take part in the work and focus of younger researchers, an opportunity to meet, get involved, interact and learn more about current and future research on water at SLU as a whole. We hope that the seminar can stimulate future collaborations on water at SLU.
