TECoSA Seminar Series 2020-2021

We have been able to cover a range of interesting topics from great speakers in our Seminar Series so far. For 2020 and 2021, the seminars were held online, and each speaker talked for about 40 minutes, followed by a panel discussion coordinated by TECoSA members.  The presentations from all seminars are published here, and some seminars were also recorded (see below).

If you are interested in joining one of the panels in future seminars, please email tecosa-admin@kth.se
