The third internal water seminar at SLU

Do you want to learn more about our water research? We are planning for the third internal water seminar at SLU to take place in Uppsala, March 20-21. Younger and early-career scholars from different departments will give presentations about their studies associated to water.

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 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.

The last day for registration was March 6.
