Place: University Library, Kungsbäcksvägen 47.
Arranger: Gävle University Library. The lecture will be filmed.
A new set of open mini-lectures in the series “12 minutes past 12” starts at the University Library. The theme for this spring is “4 x Sustainability” – social, cultural, ecological and economical.”
Lectures are given roughly once a month in the university library’s new Researcher’s Corner. The aim of the series is to spread information about current research and to increase contact between the university’s researchers and the public.
The lectures begin at 12 minutes past 12 pm, and continue for about 12 minutes, followed by an opportunity to ask questions for those who would like to know more.
