The seminars are held in the building Neo in Flemingsberg or streamed via Zoom or both. This will shown in the seminar schedule below and especially in the e-mail invitations sent out.
After the live-seminars a limited number of sandwiches and drinks will be served on a “First come – first served” basis.
