The Department of Engineering Sciences at Uppsala University welcomes you to a half-day event, organised by the Division of Applied Materials Science, taking place at the Ångström Laboratory. The event is intended for Swedish as well as international colleagues, and will focus on Swedish communication in an intercultural work environment. The aim is to foster cultural awareness and self-awareness, and to present methods for effective communication, improved collaboration and mutual trust in cross-cultural settings. This in turn will lead to a more productive and enjoyable work environment.

Summary
What happens when Swedes speak English? How are we affected by our cultural background when we communicate social consideration, feedback and criticism, opinions and facts? The Division of Applied Materials Science invites Swedish as well as international co-workers at Uppsala University to a half-day event to learn more about how we can create more productive and enjoyable work environments through recognizing inter-cultural factors.
