    For some 20 years now, the Rheumatology Department at Lund University has been organizing an annual one day Cutting Edge Rheumatology meeting featuring one local and 5-7 international speakers.

    The aim is to present a program of interest for both clinicians and basic scientists. The audience consists of rheumatology specialists and trainees from all over Sweden as well as of interested basic scientists. It is an open meeting which is sponsored by some academic foundations and by the pharmaceutical companies Abbvie and Pfizer Sweden.

  • Panel debate: Plan S and Open Access – the way to go for Swedish researchers?

    Time: 2019-05-20, 14:00
    Place: LUX lecture hall, Helgonavägen 3, Lund
    Contact: Library & ICT,

    Traditional publishing versus sharing results without restrictions has become a fundamental question that involves many different stakeholders, including scientists, librarians, publishers, and research funding organizations.

    While the discussion on Open Access is omnipresent, not much is known about the pros and cons of Plan S and its consequences for researchers. More information about Plan S.

    We therefore invite you to a panel discussion on Open Access and Plan S with international well recognized experts representing some of the most important and influential stakeholders.

    The panel discussion will take place on May 20, 2019 from 14:00 to 16:00 at the LUX lecture hall (Helgonavägen 3, 223 62 Lund).

    After the discussion we offer small snacks so you can stay a little bit longer, mingle, and have the chance to talk to the experts in person.

    Register to the event here.

    For employees at Lund University only.
