In Sweden, the main higher education, research and innovation stakeholders have been actively engaged in numerous gender equality actions since the late 1970s. The Nordic countries are among the most research-intensive and innovative societies, as well as being leading countries globally in overall societal gender equality. When it comes to gender equality in leading positions of universities, research funding organisations and scientific boards, Sweden leads in European comparisons. However, when it comes to gendered patterns in further education, academic careers and academic environments, Sweden does not stand out as a positive exception but rather shares similar patterns of inequality with many other countries. Questions addressed in this session include: what kind of gender challenges do today’s doctoral researchers and academics encounter in their academic environments and careers? How can we create more gender equal and inclusive academic organisations where all talent can thrive and advance? Are excellence and gender equality (in)compatible? And what is the role of university leaders in promoting change towards more equal and inclusive universities and academic careers?  ​<br /></div> <div><br /></div></div> </div> Seminar Advancing AI<p>Lindholmen Conference Centre, conference hall,</p><p>​Save the dates 4-5 March 2019 for the upcoming initiative seminar on AI. ​Event webpage: Registration will open in January.</p> Transformations Gathering<p>Veras gräsmatta, Vera Sandbergs allé 8</p><p>​AR+ Transformations Gathering is a community organizing event, designed by and for those committed to action oriented transformations research.</p><div>​</div> <div>Our gathering convenes a new global community to enable creative interaction around the question of how to do science/learning with stakeholders.</div> <br />If you're engaged in creating transformative knowledge, emphasizing participation, (self-) inquiry, action and deeper values orientation, then you belong!

Deep understanding of high voltage physical phenomena is needed to design and manufacture reliable and optimal HV products for HV transition systems. This presentation will focus on various examples of HV research that have contributed to the development of reliable HV products such as: power transformers, transformer and wall bushings, electrical shields for HVDC valve, gas Insulated substations (GIS), insulators etc. Some examples of topics that will be covered is: Ion transport in liquid and gases under DC stress, field and humidity dependence of conductivity in gases, steamer inception and propagation in liquid insulation, corona inception at large HVDC shields etc.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>Biography: </strong></div> <div>Olof Hjortstam was born in Jönköping, Sweden, 1967 and earned his PhD in theoretical solid-state physics at Uppsala University in 1997.

A key enabler of digitalization is virtual models of processes, products or services. By pairing the virtual and physical worlds we allow for analysis of data and monitoring of systems to take care of problems before they even occur.  This seminar presents opportunities in production with support from digital solutions from process to system.
