For the third year in a row we are arranging a seminar on ‘KI collaboration with India’.

The collaboration with India is increasing and the last two year’s India-seminars have been greatly appreciated. This year the seminar will be held on May 26th and there will be a few short presentations based on the themes:

  1. Communicable diseases
  2. Non communicable diseases
  3. Educational exchange

The presentations will be followed by a poster exhibition, discussion and the possibility to network. All are welcome, both those who are already collaborating with India regarding research or education and also those interested in such collaboration in the future.

Please click here to see the press invitation at the bottom of this page.

Please indicate your interest in attending to Martina Vallin (martina.vallin@ki.se).

Coffee/tea and snacks will be served. Welcome!
