ISP arrange 1-2 fellow evenings per semester, for students, their supervisors, and other visitors. Often these events are combined with a presentation - students giving a talk about their home country and culture, or by some invited speaker on a topic of general interest. Besides that we eat, talk and get to know each other.
ISP also arrange other social gatherings for students and visitors on a less regular basis, like excursions, attending the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony (in the event we get tickets).
Coming events: Spring 2019 - to be announced
