Sahlgrenska Academy Seminars

The Council for Research (FOR) wants to promote scientific exchange between scientists at Sahlgrenska Academy and prominent international scientists and universities. In addition, FOR aims to increase the opportunities for informal scientific discussions and interactions between faculty members and students at SA.

As a measure to promote this FOR now starts Sahlgrenska Academy Seminars, and faculty members at Sahlgrenska Academy are invited to suggest prominent international speakers to invite, and to act as hosts during their visits to SA.

Instructions for hosts

  • The host suggests a lecturer. The lecturer should be presented very briefly, with a short motivation, why he/she should be invited. Hypertext to key publications, home pages and other existing text is encouraged. FOR will then decide and prioritize.
  • If there is a possible date already, that should be mentioned. The seminars are at lunch, but can be any day in the week, to be convenient for the host/lecturer, e g in connection with a congress in Europe, other trip etc.
  • The host will be asked to serve as chairperson during the seminar.
  • The host will mediate communication between the lecturer and administrators regarding flights hotels etc. It is much to prefer for everybody if FOR can pay extra flights, hotel rooms, Gothenburg taxis etc directly to avoid paper work after the visit.
  • The host may bring the lecturer to a lunch or dinner, if that can be fitted into the schedule.
  • The host may organize informal meetings between the lecturer and other scientists at the Sahlgrenska Academy.
  • In connection with the visit there may be a press release. The host and lecturer may be asked to provide background information for that.
