SRS 2023

Svenska Rymdforskares Samarbetsgrupp


The Swedish Institute of Space Physics and the Uppsala University are happy to invite you all to Uppsala for the SRS 2023 meeting, March 14-15, 2023. The meeting covers different areas of space sciences carried out at Swedish institutes. The format includes invited talks. The meeting is open to all and there is no registration fee. To register please fill out the form.

This year we foresee to have a new session in the programme with discussions about funding strategies in Sweden. For questions and general matters about SRS please contact Maria Hamrin,  at email <>.  For further information about the 2023 meeting please see below or contact Stephan Buchert <>.

Venue and Transport

The venue is the Sonja Lyttkens lecture hall (Å101121) in house 10 ("New Ångström") of the Ångström Laboratory of the Uppsala University. The campus is located about 2.5 km from central Uppsala, and can be reached by public bus, several lines, 4, 12, ..., bicycle, e-scooter, or on foot, especially when the weather is nice.
