Thinkfest in English

Science breaks loose! Thinkfest, an open urban festival for thought and science, will be held in the centre of Helsinki on 5 October – 8 October 2016. Thinkfest celebrates science, thinking and learning. Theme for this year is digitalisation and how it affects our everyday life in fields of communication, personal learning and teaching for example.

On Wednesday and Thursday we have versatile program in Finnish as well as in English. At our campus events students have the opportunity to meet specialists from different fields of research. On Wednesday evening you can join the Helsinki Challenge Impact Evening in a bilingual event and meet the amazing Challenge teams from last year.

On Saturday we welcome all families to join us on an adventure in Natural History Museum, Kaisaniemi Botanic Garden and Kumpula campus!

Thinkfest is one of the main events of the academic year at the University of Helsinki and it is organised together with Helsingin Sanomat.
