Venue and Accommodation

Workshop location

The workshop will be held at Eden (Political Sciences building), a venue very close to the main university building on the old central campus in the city of Lund.


The largest nearby hub is Copenhagen Airport (CPH) with direct connections to all major european cities. From there trains to Lund depart four times per hour at peak times and three times per hour off-peak. The train ride is 40 min, but expect another 20 min on top due to the recent border controls.

Note that you have to buy a ticket before boarding the train. There can be a stiff €100 fine otherwise!

Some people with specific origin cities (Madrid, Barcelona, Treviso, Turin, Innsbruck, Salzburg) and many others in Eastern Europe might find cheap tickets to Malmö Sturup Airport (MMX). From there a shuttle bus (remeber to select to/from Lund in 'Route') goes regularly to Lund and the trip takes about 45 min.

We recommend checking flights on, since even low-cost airlines such as EasyJet and Ryanair are included there.


Two hotels have a contingent of rooms reserved for workshop participants:

  1. The Nordic Hotel: single room at 1100 SEK/day, double room 1350 SEK/day,
