30/11 – 14:00-17:00  “Julskyltning” at Storm – A festive showcase of MAU research and innovation

Julskyltning [‘jʉːl,ɧyltnɪŋ] –  from jul (Christmas) + skyltning (display) – is a tradition in Sweden since the middle of the 19th century. It usually falls on the last weekend of November and marks the beginning of the Christmas festivities, where the shops start to prepare for the Christmas shopping by decorating their display windows with elaborate installations.

In honor of this, we would like to invite you to our very special Julskyltning at Storm! On Friday the 30th of November we will present a festive showcase of MAU research – in the coziest of Yule atmospheres. Come celebrate the end of our first year as Malmö University with glögg, pepparkakor and super interesting presentations by our most recent PhD graduates – among other surprises!

More info coming soon.
