We have on the agenda a session where every project presents itself in MAX 3 minutes. So, please prepare a short presentation about your project. Participants from the same project can agree between themselves who is giving the presentation. We hope that you take the 3 minutes time limit as an interesting challenge. We will use a timer in the event!


It is optional to bring own material to be displayed on a limited exhibition area in the venue. Please inform marita.thelin@lansstyrelsen.se if you want to bring some material with you.


The projects will cover their travel expenses and accommodation from their own budgets. Venue, lunch 28.11., and dinner 28.11. will be offered by Kolarctic CBC.
