Museum of Natural History, Frescativägen 40, StockholmThe Swedish Museum of Natural History is running a seminar series on issues of wide interest for natural history - on Life, Earth, Time and Space.
Topics may range from cosmology to conservation biology, with an emphasis on recent scientific advances and cross-discipline interactions.
Our aim is to present lectures that will communicate the excitement of modern science to a varied but scientifically informed audience of scientists, students and laymen.
There are a number of top-notch scientists giving lectures. The seminars are open to everyone interested. Entrance is free. The language is English (occasionally Swedish, as advertised).
We hope for lots of questions and discussions during and after the lectures, and there will be opportunity for an informal get-together after each lecture.
