The Environmental Effects Assessment Panel (UNEP-EEAP) conference will be held 19-27 September in Kalmar, Sweden at Linnaeus University. Finally we can meet live.
UNEP-EEAP gathers researchers with a broad expertise in the various effects of ozone layer depletion. The participants cover health effects, atmospheric chemistry, ecology, materials engineering, etc. and the panel evaluates how ozone layer depletion is affecting human health and ecosystems. This knowledge is then summarized and delivered to the parties of the Montreal Protocol to enable informed decisions.
Registration closed August 15.
The conference is free of charge for co-authors, panel members and invited reviewers. Participants find their own funding for travels and accommodation. Accompanying persons are most welcome to join social activities (Welcome reception, Excursion, Dinner at Kalmar castle) but need to contribute for the cost (payment during registration).
NOTE! This conference is only open for invited participants.

Dinner at Kalmar Castle
The history of Kalmar Castle goes back 800 years. For a long time, Kalmar Castle was an important fortification, called ‘the key to the realm’ because of its strategic location. Since then, many kings have ruled the castle and left their own marks on it. The castle’s history goes back to the 12th century. It was here that the Kalmar Union was signed in 1397 and the castle was given its present look already during the Vasa kings in the 16th century.
The dinner includes a drink and a three-course meal, and a dinner host will tell us about the history of the castle. The dinner is free of charge for co-authors, panel members and invited external reviewers. Accompanying persons are most welcome to join but need to contribute for the cost (payment during registration). Conference dinner will be at Kalmar Castle 6 p.m. September 22.
There are several very good lunch restaurants both at Linnaeus University and in the surrounding area. Closest to the conference is Restaurang L, Zegel, Lotsutkiken, Blomlöfs in Kalmar, Gröna Stugan, Slottshotellet and Bryggan in Baronen.
The most convenient way of reaching Kalmar by air is to fly to Stockholm Arlanda and then take either a domestic flight to Kalmar (1 h) or the train (5-6 h). An alternative to this would be to either fly to Copenhagen and then take the train to Kalmar (~ 4 h; please note that there are no direct flights between Copenhagen and Kalmar), or, as a third option, catch the direct flight to Kalmar from Frankfurt am Main (flights three times a week).
Please note that no matter which route you choose, you need to check with your airline about corona specific restrictions for their flights - we know that this may vary from airline to airline! Read more about restrictions when travelling to Sweden.

There is a second airport in Stockholm called Bromma. For flights from Stockholm Bromma airport (BMR) to Kalmar Airport (KLR) visit flygbra.se/en for more information.

About Linnaeus University and the City of Kalmar
Linnaeus University is a creative and international knowledge environment that promotes curiosity, creativity, companionship and utility. More than 44,000 students are registered at Linnaeus University.
Linnaeus University is located in Växjö and Kalmar and offers 150 degree programmes and 1,300 single-subject courses. Linnaeus University was established in 2010 through a merger between Växjö University and Kalmar University College.
With some 2,100 employees and 44,000 students it is a modern university with Småland as its base and the world as its arena. Studying and working at Linnaeus University involves being part of an environment that is characterised by knowledge and development. Students acquire new knowledge and learn to have a critical approach. Researchers make new discoveries that can bring change to our society. Employees share stories of a workplace with both challenges and opportunities. Linnaeus University is a university where people can reach their full potential.
In Kalmar, history is always present when walking between the beautiful buildings, in the narrow alleys and town squares. Kalmar is an idyllic place right next to the sea, and the island of Öland is just a trip across the bridge away. Here you will get to enjoy city and nature in one and the same place. Kalmar Castle and the city park, the university buildings, the walking paths along the sea – distances are small and in 5–10 minutes you can reach most places. In Kalmar, which consists largely of islands, you are always near the sea. More about what to see and do in Kalmar.
Students are an important part of Kalmar and in 2021 our brand new facilities at Universitetskajen were inaugurated, with a view of the sea and the island of Öland. It feels natural that much of the education and research that Linnaeus University conducts in Kalmar is linked to the city’s history and nature. And, of course, the sea.
Not far from Kalmar you will find Glasriket. Here you can take part of the history of glassworks and try out glassblowing. More about Glasriket.
If you have the time, we recommend that you make the trip across the bridge to visit Öland. We will also visit Öland on our excursion. More under special tab. More about the island of Öland.
Start from Calmar stadshotell and walk towards the beach “Kattrumpan”. Then walk through the city all the way to Kalmar Castle. On your way back, walk past Universitetskajen that was inaugurated in August 2021. The inauguration of Universitetskajen means that Linnaeus University’s facilities in Kalmar are now gathered in one location, right next to the sea, and neighbour with the city centre and Kalmar Castle. Earlier, the university’s facilities were spread out across Kalmar.
This is what makes Kalmar unique. One second, you can be at the beach and the next visit historical Kalmar or the city centre to do some shopping or have a meal. Welcome to Kalmar!
