Welcome to take part in an important discussion on the research conducted in the Nordic countries in 2030 – and what the societal impact of that research will be. Higher education and research should have societal relevance, but who defines that relevance and how?
The event will take place Friday 9 November 2018 at 1 PM to 3 PM at Hanaholmen – Cultural Centre for Sweden and Finland in Espoo, close to Helsinki, and will be followed by a cocktail party from 3 PM to 4 PM.
A key note will be given by Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Professor Heidi Hansson from Umeå University and its Department of Language Studies. After her speech, a panel will discuss different Nordic perspectives on higher education: business, politics and civil society. Panel members: Deputy Vice-Chancellor Fredrika Lagergren from University of Gothenburg, Business Developer Tanja Suni from University of Helsinki and Secretary General Cissi Askwall from VA (Public & Science) in Sweden. The panel is moderated by Docent Tuomas Heikkilä from University of Helsinki.
