Every year DOMFIL arranges a research symposium called Health University Research Symposium (HURS). The purpose of HURS is to bring forward the medical research conducted in Linköping, inspire PhD student and young researchers to better research and at the same time create a platform for meetings between the industry, students and researchers. This year HURS will be held on the March 23rd 2018 and you are more than welcome to participate!

Remember the event is OPEN and FREE of charge!! You should also know that free coffee will be served during the day and that the first 50 attendees will receive a stuffed bag of goodies.

Location: Hus 511 (Växthuset) Entrance 78, Campus US
