ViPS Science Fair 2021
ViPS research groups present their work

Date: 18th October 2021

Time: 10:30-12:30

Location: Remotely via Zoom

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 given via Zoom.
