About the seminar

We specifically welcomed Phd-students who were in the end of their time, but also encouraged those Phd-students in their early stages to come, and start the process of the next step. Young researchers and supervisors were also very welcome of course!

This invitation has been circulated to the ClimBEco-school, to the networks within the strategic research areas BECC and MERGE, to the N- and S- faculties at LU and to LDK. We also welcomed people from other universities than Lund University!
