Professor Marcus Hällgren from Umeå School of Business, Economics and Statistics, Umeå talks about the  group ethnology research method that he used in his research when he followed climbers on Mount Everest for a couple of months.

Markus introduces us to the difficulties, advantages and disadvantages he experienced during the time when he had to both act in the role of a researcher and stay objective in what was happening, but also had to act as a regular group member. Markus Hällgren's research interests cover decision making in extreme environments and how group dynamics and leadership are affected by various factors in this environment.

The presentation will be in English. Students are very welcome to join!
