The Erik Castrén Institute organizes and co-organizes a variety of scientific events that pertain to the research interests of the Institute. More information on upcoming and past events can be found below.
The most renowned of the ECI events is the annual Helsinki Summer Seminar. It's a whole institution on its own: with editions held in Helsinki every August it has become an attractive option for interesting and affordable summer studies. Topics change yearly, making the Helsinki Summer Seminar an up-to-date event. The year 2018 makes an exception in the annual tradition, as the Summer Seminar is not organized at all due to recent organizational changes at the hosting university.
