Spring 2019 Alumni activities

Here you can see, what kind of alumni activities there are available in English at the University of Helsinki!

In addition to multidisciplinary alumni events we also organize Faculty level events, which give the alumni a chance to meet professionals and to hear more about the current accomplishments of their own fields of science. We tell about these targeted events through alumni newsletters of the faculties. When you keep your personal details and interests up-to-date in your alumni profile, you will also in the future get contacted by the faculty.

Time: Wednesday, January 23 at 5.30 – 7.00 pm
Place: The Finnish Institute in London

The University of Helsinki is among the best multidisciplinary universities in the world. One of our goals for the future is to make an even stronger global impact together with our international partners. To meet this goal, we are investing in the internationalization and bringing the UH message close to our alumni and other stakeholders. We have a large alumni network present in United Kingdom, and Greater London area, and we would like to advance the formation of an active alumni network in this area together with our alumni.

The Chancellor of the University of Helsinki, Mr. Kaarle Hämeri had a pleasure of inviting our alumni in the Greater London area to an informal get-together on Wednesday, January 23 at 5.30 – 7.00 pm, at the Finnish Institute in London to discuss the vision and the current activities of the University of Helsinki as well as how our alumni abroad can take part in the University of Helsinki Community. The Institute’s Director Emilie Gardberg, as well as our alumni professor Arttu Rajantie from Imperial College (the Chair of Finnish Science Society in the UK and active in the Scientists for EU network) shared their thoughts on international collaboration.

There was a possibility to meet the Young Finnish Artist of The Year Nastja Säde Rönkkö, who is currently in residence at Somerset House working on her project Six Months Without The Internet. By January she had spent three months offline exploring alternatives to citizenship, communities and life online.

What kind of alumni activities and services would you like to have? The University of Helsinki Alumni Services are developing the alumni services for international alumni network and are keen to hear directly from the alumni of the UH, which kind of activities and possibilities they are longing for.

Our international alumni in Finland and abroad will have an opportunity to comment development materials online.
