How to find the KBC Focus Environment


We gather a diverse crowd and a researcher gets about five minutes and minimum number of slides to pitch an open problem in her research, reaching out for complementing expertise and collaboration. We will provide for free as fancy food as we can given the university rules for internal representation, and spend the rest of the time brainstorming in smaller groups. In this way, you will spend your lunch in a fun and productive way, and potentially open new avenues for research at the university.Book your sandwich for 14th November (latest on 13th November 12.00)

More lunch pitches will be organised every other Tuesday: on November 28, and December 12. If you would be interested in pitching an open problem, please add your name to the dates that work for you: https://doodle.com/poll/ub5a6ewczz3xxdhhor contact the organiser of the lunch pitches, Martin Rosvall, by Email, martin.rosvall@umu.se.
