Events Calendar

Welcome to the 10th Bolin Days!

Welcome to the Bolin Days November 21–22 2018

We are proud to welcome you to the 10th Bolin Days with four cross-disciplinary sessions and invited seminars by the MERGE collaboration and the House of Science. This year the thematic sessions are Arctic Climate, Impacts of extreme weather events & climate change, Climate & environmental change and Climate & biota. The poster sessions are a nice way to form new interesting collaborations and there will be a poster competition for PhD students. The Bolin Centre Database team will be present as well as our modelling coordinators, the Climate Research School, the mentoring scheme organisers, the coordinator for the Bolin Centre Climate Arena and the Bolin Centre booth with give-aways. We also warmly welcome you to participate in the final dinner followed by a ceilidh with live music.

You can no longer register for the Bolin Days.
It is not possible to book for the Bolin dinner anymore. The Bolin dinner is fully booked!
