The OKC-day is a plenary meeting for all OKC members and takes place twice per year. The program varies from edition to edition and can include various themes, such as professional development, OKC organization, scientific presentations of present or future projects, etc. Also a number of team building activities are organized during the meeting to get people to know each other.

This year we will focus on cross-disciplinary activities ongoing at the Oskar Klein Centre right now. We will also get to know each other and welcome new OKC:ers that joined us recently.

The OKC-day will be held in Högberga Gård in the beautiful island of Lidingö, just outside Stockholm.
