ViPS Science Fair 2019

ViPS research groups present their work

Date: 26th September 2019

Time: 14:00-16:00

Location: Viikki A building foyer, Latokartanonkaari 7

Doctoral candidates and post-docs from ViPS research groups will present their projects to students from the Master's Programmes in Integrative Plant Sciences, 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!
