Uppsala Creativity Day

Uppsala Creativity Day 2009 – and the first one ever, I might add. The event is hosted by Junior Faculty TekNat and MedFarm tomorrow, Monday March 2nd. I’m so looking forward the the different perspectives on creativity that will be presented. One glance at the speaker list and you can easily imagine how interesting dinner table discussions I’ve had this weekend in Uppsala.
