SciLifeLab Seminar Series – Campus Solna

Speakers for the the Science for Life Seminars  – Campus Solna can be nominated twice per year. SciLifeLab covers the expenses for the seminar room, travel and accommodation and a social activity according to the Seminars Guidelines.
The nominations are evaluated by the Science for life Seminars  – Campus Solna committee, that will accept excellent national and international speakers within the field of bioscience. The researcher that nominates an accepted speaker will be the “host” of the seminar.
The host is responsible of finding a date for the seminar and booking travel and accommodations.

Since the committee strives to obtain gender balance across the invited speakers, preferences will be given to nominations of two speakers of opposite gender.

In Campus Solna, Tomtebodavägen 23a, the Science for Life Seminars – Campus Solna is running every month since fall 2018.
