The Department of LIME brings you a new concept; a forum for thoughts, exchanges, including possible future collaborations. It is an arena with interesting seminars, lectures and interactions with invited lecturers. LIME talks invites both internal and external participants.

LIME talks

Upcoming LIME talks:

Faces of two men

Sweden and the covid-19 pandemic – Reflections for the future. June 9th, 11 am to 12.15 pm.

The Swedish Covid-19 pandemic and its management has been much discussed in Sweden and internationally. Did the pandemic behave differently in Sweden than elsewhere? Did the Swedish authorities behave differently than elsewhere? And was Sweden worse hit by the pandemic than other countries? What were the lessons learned for the future from the pandemic experience - in Sweden and globally? 

These and related questions are discussed in a chapter on Sweden in a new book on the pandemic to be published later this year by Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. In this LIME talk we will present the key content of the chapter and bring some possible conclusions to the table for discussion.

The project coordinator from Halifax, Professor Katherine Fierlback, will act as initial discussant of the paper after which we hope for a lively discussion in the audience.

Presenter: Birger Forsberg, Docent, GPH, KI

The seminar will be chaired by Göran Tomson, Professor Emeritus, LIME, KI
LIME talks host is Carl Johan Sundberg, Professor, LIME, KI

Room: David, on a first come, first served basis. KI Campus Solna, Widerström building, Tomtebodavägen 18A, entrance floor.

LIME talks - Inspiring lifelong learning through dialogue

30 min presentation and 30 min discussion

LIME talks is aiming to inspire life long learning through dialouge and therefore the one hour long LIME talks is clearly divided into two parts; a presentation by the LIME talks presenter and a discussion about the topic.

How does it work?

A LIME talks host proposes a subject or a presenter and gets in touch with the LIME talks coordinator to present the proposal. After consulting with the LIME talks programme council the LT coordinator comes back with an answer.
