Virtual after-work with FinnCERES & PI

You are warmly welcome to our virtual after-work event on 13 September, jointly organized by FinnCERES and the Finnish Forest Products Engineers’ Association (PI). You will hear how the FinnCERES Flagship has progressed during the first years of operation – What is coming out from the research pipeline? Moreover, you will find out how Aalto University is promoting sustainability in education. You will also hear about the ExpandFibre ecosystem and how it supports the translation of scientific breakthroughs into sustainable innovations.

Additionally, we will have the pleasure to hear short research pitches from the Finnish candidates attending the Young Researchers’ Challenge of the Marcus Wallenberg Prize event later in October 2021.
