You are warmly welcome to join our special Wine and Science event next Thu 26 Jan at 13-16!

LUKE and the Department of Forest Sciences have collaborated for decades and shared multiple interests in the fields of forest productivity and ecosystem ecology. We now share also the same roof. This opens new possibilities not only for strengthening our collaboration links but also for sharing local infrastructure and know-how. The purpose of this event is to give a general overview of research activities, methodologies and special instrumentation that is available in both institutes as well as to identify and promote future collaborative activities.
