The meeting will take place on August 22-24 at Saxnäsgården in Saxnäs, South Lapland. We invite everyone working at UPSC or associated with UPSC to spend three days together to discuss how we can strengthen UPSC to be competitive in future.
Which are the future challenges and how can they be addressed? What is important for your personal career or group development? What type of support would you like to get? How to improve UPSC’s work environment? These and other questions will be addressed during the three days in the beautiful environment of Saxnäs in South Lapland.
Get involved and help us to create a vision for the next 20 years of UPSC!
We are currently working on the programme. Do you have any suggestions? Please feel free to contact Totte Niittylä, Stefan Jansson or/and Anne Honsel.
