Welcome to a digital meeting in which Lund researchers who are active on social media will share their insights and tips.

For many researchers, social media is an opportunity to interact with wider society, from colleagues in the research community and other experts to politicians, journalists and decision-makers. However, approaches to, and benefits from, a social media presence vary. At this digital lunch meeting, Lund researchers share their insights and experiences, mainly from Twitter and LinkedIn.

The event is organised by Corporate Communications.

Date and time  

7 February (in English) from 12:00 to 13:00.

Two meetings will also be held in Swedish (links to Medarbetarwebben):

31 January (in Swedish)

3 February (in Swedish)

For whom?

Mainly for researchers and doctoral students, regardless of whether they are considering the launch of a social media presence, are already active or well-versed in running social media accounts. Other employees are also welcome to join. 


On Teams. A link will be sent out with the invitation.

Speakers on 7 February

Magnus Genrup is a researcher in energy sciences who has been active on LinkedIn for several years. Over that time, he has built up a following in the field which enables informed discussions that are not easy to find in other contexts.

Louise Bringselius conducts research on trust, governance and leadership at the School of Economics and Management. She is active on both LinkedIn and Twitter, using the channels in slightly different ways for different target groups. Thanks to social media, she finds that her research achieves greater impact.

Hakim Abdi, researcher in geoinformatics, uses his Twitter account to monitor developments in wider society and to gain insight into what researcher colleagues around the world are discussing. It is also a way for him to talk about his own research.
