The CBF (my research program here in Sweden) has won a huge grant based on a great, multi-program proposal written by my supervisor. To help map out the strategy for the next few months and years, we are going on a departmental retreat to Sundsvall. Sundsvall is a town on the east coast about halfway between GÃ¤vle and UmeÃ¥ (where the other researchers in our department are situated.) I travel there Monday morning and come back Tuesday night. We will have lots of meetings of course, but have been told to bring warm clothes because there will be outdoor activities too. Fun! This is a nice way to get to see another part of Sweden. I’ll post with pictures when I get back.
