Kista Science Seminar: Dark matter, Dark Energy and Black Holes

The ICT School recently started a set of seminars of general scientific interest, to be held ideally the last Friday of each month. The first one was given by the head of Ericsson research, showing the strategy of the company for the coming year. The second one was given by the director of the construction of the European Spallation Source (ESS) in Sweden. The third one is scheduled on Friday, May 29. You can find more information here:

All Ph.D. students are of course very welcome to join, and you will be offered coffee and pastries before the seminar. We think that there are many good aspects with this event. First, you get to hear what is going on at the edge of the research world in different fields, which are not yours. Usually the speakers are very good delivers, so that you can actually relax and enjoy the talk. Second, the idea of the seminars is very popular in many other universities, but not so much here (yet). We think that having seminaries is a very positive thing, and if you think the same, please come and show that we, Ph.D. students, appreciate the initiative. Third, but not less important, we can use that moment to get to know each other.

Therefore, join the Kista Science Seminars!
