Studia Generalia

Open and free-of-charge public lectures at the University of Helsinki for friends of science, research and learning. The Studia Generalia lecture series in the spring of 2024 focuses on inclusivity.

Inclusivity is the fourth value of the University. It means equality, openness, respect for others and working together. Inclusivity also plays a key role in our societies since it defines our interactions and ways of doing things. In honour of the theme, we will step outside of our campuses and organise lectures in various locations in the Capital region.
