ViPS Science Fair 2017

ViPS research groups present their work

Date: 10th October 2017

Time: 16:00-18:00

Location: Viikki A building foyer, Latokartanonkaari 9

Doctoral candidates and post-docs from ViPS research groups will present their projects to students from the Master's Programmes in Plant Biology, Agricultural Sciences & Forest Sciences. The aim is to gain an understanding of the plant biology research being carried out at the University of Helsinki and to explore the possibility of joining a research group for a short period of practical training.

Presentations will mainly be in the form of laptop slides, but there is limited space for a few posters.

ALL welcome!
