This year starts by introducing you about how to apply for RRE in Lund University, Sweden. Lund is a middle-sized town in the south of Sweden, close to Malmø and the Øresunds-bridge over to Denmark. Us in the second cycle went to Lund in March 2011 for a three days compact seminar. Lund is an old university city and has a lot of students, many of them from different countries of the world. an active city, and easy to get around. I have added some pics to Henrik`s text, from our Lundseminar.
