Research Funding News 5 2019

Autumn winds of change


We have arrived mid-way through the autumn semester, and whilst days are growing darker, shorter, colder and soggier, our workdays are sparkling with activity. And speaking of ‘sparkling’… 
 

Research Services are moving to The Spark! 


In the end of October, Research Services will be joining the rest of the section for Research, Collaboration and Innovation (FSI) to move into The Spark, the newly established main building at Medicon Village (Scheeletorget 1). We will be lodging on the fourth floor – come by and visit if you are in the neighborhood (we promise: no tricks, just treats)!

Happy Halloween//
