Symposium 19.10.2022: Ukrainian researchers in Finland


Ukrainian researchers in Finland
– Symposium of The Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters

Time:            Wednesday 19 October 2022, 14:00 – 18:00

Venue:          House of Science and Letters
                       Kirkkokatu 6, 00170 Helsinki

After Russia’s brutal attack on Ukraine on 24th February 2022, the Finnish Society of Sciences and Letters took prompt action to help Ukrainian scientists affected by the war. Just a little more than a week after the outbreak of war, the Society made grants for scientific research in Finland available to Ukrainian scientists who sorely needed assistance. In a short period of time, we granted 14 stipends to a total amount of 171 360 euro.

The purpose of the symposium is to bring our Ukrainian grantees together and give them the opportunity to present their research and make contacts with their co-patriots and with Finnish researchers. The seminar will end with a discussion of the current situation of research and education in Ukraine and Finland.

The symposium is open to everyone. There is no entrance fee. Welcome to the House of Sciences and Letters or follow the event via this link.
