More information about how to proceed is found on Medarbetarportalen/Service and support/travel
If the speaker prefers to book flight him/herself, kindly ask the speaker´s employer/organisation/university to do so, and send original invoice, receipts, tickets, itineraries to:
Office for SciLifeLab in Uppsala, Uppsala University, Ref 425000, att. Frida Lind, Box 3037, SE-750 03, Uppsala, SWEDEN
Please note that Uppsala University can only reimburse organizations, i.e. no private claims will be reimbursed. Reimbursement claims must be made within one year after the seminar.
In the unfortunate case that, your speaker needs private reimbursement for the travel, the speaker will need to send a SINK request to the Swedish tax agency and a bank transfer request to the Nordea bank before the reimbursement can be processed. This can take up to several months to complete. Please, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to proceed.

Kindly note that, the seminars with the highest attendance are those where the seminar host has been active in announcing their seminar within their network
Since the seminar series also is a PhD course it is important that the attendance list is passed around during the seminar. The SciLifeLab representative (not the host) is responsible for bringing the attendance list to the seminar.
