About Kalmar and Linnaeus University
The host for this symposium is Linnaeus University, one of Sweden's newest higher education institutions, located in the Southeast of Sweden. The symposium will be organized by two of the university's departments, the Kalmar Maritime Academy and the Department of Health and Caring Science, and it will take place in Kalmar.
The city of Kalmar is a medium-sized city located on the southeast coast of Sweden, by the Baltic Sea, and well known for its long history as one of the most important cities for coastal trade in Northern Europe and part of the Hanseatic League.
Kalmar offers a wide range of spare-time activities such as a visit at Kalmar castle, the cathedral, or trips to the island of Öland or the famous Kingdom of Crystals (Glasriket), the heart of Swedish glass design. More information on Kalmar via this link!
