Let’s meet online & talk LCA research!
November 26, Online 10:00-15:00

Welcome to a digital network conference that aims to highlight the Swedish research front within LCA. The conference will give room for presentations, discussions and possibilities to network with other LCA researchers and professionals. A mix of plenary session with keynote, networking activities and parallel sessions is planned to cover as many research areas within the conference theme as possible. The parallel sessions will all have different outline to best suit the topic. Some are more focused on presentations while others are more focused on discussion and dialogue.

We are also determined to give you as many opportunities to mingle and network as possible. At the end of the day there will be a longer matchmaking and networking event where you, when signing up for the event, can wish for topics to discuss.

The network conference will be open for all.
