Welcome to the 13th UCMR Day, January 20th 2022


We cordially invite you to attend the UCMR Day 2022, which will be held as an online conference!

Due to increased spread of infection and increased strain on the healthcare system, the Swedish Government has introduced a new action plan of COVID measures that took effect on 8 December. As a response to this, the Vice-Chancellor adopted a revised decision for Umeå University that implies, among other things, that larger meetings and events should be implemented online or be postponed.

In order to comply with the rules, while still having the possibility to meet and interact within the UCMR community in a way that guarantees the safety of all participants, we decided to make the UCMR Day an online event only!
