ViPS Science Fair 2018

ViPS research groups present their work

Date: 18th October 2018

Time: 14:00-16:00

Location: Biocentre 3 foyer, Viikinkaari 1

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 be in the form of laptop slides or paper posters.

Refreshments served.

ALL welcome!
