ViPS Science Fair 2023

ViPS research groups present their work

Date: 3rd October 2023

Time: 16:00-18:00

Location: Learning centre (Oppimistori) 1401, Biocentre 1, Viikinkaari 9

Doctoral researchers 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.

Refreshments served.
