GEM - seminars for the staff

GEM stands for "Gränsöverskridande EftermiddagsMöte" (translates to border-crossing afternoon meetings). During the semester Vice-Chancellor Björn Brorström invites the staff at the university to seminars and meetings on different themes.

The seminars are mostly held in Swedish. A seminar usually starts with a lecture on a specific subject and is followed by an open discussion.

GEM: Research that changes society

2017 the University of Borås celebrates 40 years. An important part of the celebrations is to highlight the research that is conducted within our research areas. During the spring semester there will four lectures where members of the staff will present their part of the research areas.

Most of these are held in Swedish. The only one held in English was on 19 April, where the area of Textiles and Fashion was presented.
