Njord Seminar Series spring '21

We are delighted to cordially invite you to Njord Seminar Series for the spring semester of 2021. 

To get news, invitation to seminars and other activities at Njord, please subscribe to our newsletter.

We have an exciting and diverse schedule, with interesting speakers and topics, and are very much looking forward to the talks. Due to the circumstances all talks in the series this semester will be taking place on Zoom, every Friday (except Easter) at 2PM CET.

Below you can see the schedule. The talks are 45 minutes long, with 10-15 minutes allocated for questions and discussion at the end. After some of the talks there will be a smaller discussion group for those especially interested in the topic. If you have interest in joining this for any of the talks on the schedule, please get in contact with the listed Njord-host who will be organizing this. 

Recordings of some of the seminars is available upon request, get in contact with Mino.
