Polarforum is a meeting place for all those engaged in research concerning, or in, the polar regions, the Swedish mountain region, and other Northern regions. The aim is to create contacts between researchers, the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat and other actors. The conference in 2022 will be held in English.
The next Polarforum will be held in Skissernas Museum (Birgit Rausing's hall) in Lund in collaboration with Lund University, on 17 November 2022.
This year's program will include information from the Swedish Polar Research Secretariat, polar research at Lund University, information from funding bodies, current expeditions and other news that are linked to Swedish polar research.
On November 16 from 18:00-20:00, we have an Icebreaker event in Gamla Biskopshuset, Lund.
