This year’s program and seminar
This year’s seminar is held on the 6th of December at Cirkus in Stockholm. With a history that dates back to 1892, and its beautiful surroundings and vicinity to the city centre, we could not be happier to invite our participants and student audience to this unique location.
We are also immensely proud to present Ulf Danielsson as this year’s guest lecturer. Ulf Danielsson is a professor theoretical physics at Uppsala university. In his research, he explores if string theory can answer fundamental questions about our universe; Is it only a small part of a much larger multiverse? How do we explain dark matter? In addition, he is engaged in reaching out to the public, sharing his curiosity and knowledge about our universe. He has published several popular science books – his latest book “Vårt klot så ömkligt litet” describes the history of planet Earth and the effects of climate change. He has also given numerous popular science lectures on television, radio, and even in theater! Ulf Danielsson is also a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
This year’s participants’ schedule is full of interesting and exciting events. Participants will make field trips to Swedish science and tech companies, and academic institutions, learn more about and take part in Swedish customs and traditions, visit museums and parts of Sweden’s rich cultural heritage, as well as participate in exiting and fun Swedish winter activities.
