The fourth internal water seminar at SLU

seminars, workshops |

Do you want to learn more about our water research? We are planning for the fourth internal water seminar at SLU to take place in Uppsala, on 11-12 April 2024. Younger and early-career scholars from different departments will give presentations about their studies associated to water. We are also planning presentations from a few invited senior researchers.

SLU has strong and broad expertise on water, but we are spread out across different faculties, departments, and campuses. This seminar allows us to take part in the work of younger researchers and is an opportunity to meet, get involved, interact, and learn more about current and future research on water at SLU as a whole.

Register at the Swedish version of this calendar post.

We hope that the seminar can stimulate future collaborations on water.
