Workshops and Seminars in Finland

Since 2013, the FinCEAL initiative has organized 39 thematic networking events, seminars, trainings or workshops in Finland. These events contributed significantly to the realization of the FinCEAL objectives by enhancing thematic networking, partnership building, dialogue between the research community and policy makers. In addition, these events have provided a platform for information sharing and dissemination of project outputs like the FinCEAL Policy Reports of 2018.

In 2015-2016 we organized various events in Finland. These events served a variety of purposes: supporting partnership building, discussing the opportunities and challenges related to cooperation between universities, businesses and other stakeholders in joint projects, and discovering untapped opportunities for cooperation, and/or increasing the Finnish science community's knowledge about the opportunities in Horizon 2020. Thematic Asia Workshops were organized for networking, training and gathering researchers input into Asia policy processes, but also to discuss the opportunities and challenges related to cooperation between universities, businesses and other stakeholders in joint projects which all are fundamental in determining funding and research priorities within Asia.
