In this spring’s Brown Bag seminars, we introduce the research of the newly started researchers in the Biodiverse Anthropocenes profiling theme alongside interesting research topics from other disciplines in our university. Biodiverse Anthropocenes is an Academy of Finland funded research theme that focuses on investigating the biodiversity loss currently threatening multi-species well-being and planetary sustainability, and on generating future-oriented solutions both in the Arctic and around the planet.

In Brown Bag research seminars, the researchers of the University of Oulu get to introduce their favorite subjects to a multidisciplinary audience and have discussions across scientific borders. Brown Bag seminars are open to everyone. Join us for some science and an interesting cross-disciplinary conversation!
