15/5 – 08:30-17:00 Hoffice at Storm

Welcome to set up office at Storm (Gäddan, Citadellsvägen 7). Bring your laptop and get started on that to-do-list in a distraction-free zone.

Inspired by the concept Hoffice, the day will be split into 45-minute silent working sessions with energizing breaks in-between. At the beginning of each session, everyone tells the group what they’re going to work on, and at the end of each session we check in with each other to see what we managed to get done.

More info about the Hoffice concept here!

On May 17, Storm welcome’s you to an open seminar about GDPR and its impact on the research process. The seminar deals with questions of how you as a student, researcher or teacher can encounter GDPR in your daily work and how to use it. Furthermore, we will talk about what’s actually considered data and what GDPR means for the consumer.
