GenZ-ArcI lecture series: Co-evolution

Thursday, April 4, 2019

The two strategic profiling themes of the University of Oulu GenZ and ArcI (Arctic Interactions) organize a joint lecture series. The aim of the GenZ-ArcI lecture series is to trigger discussions and to offer a possibility for collaboration across disciplines on the core themes in the profiling areas.

The themes of the lecture series are based on the main research themes of the both projects. The first theme will be Co-evolution. Four researchers from the GenZ and ArcI profiling areas will give a co-evolution related lecture on their research. The event is aimed to all university researchers, students and other interested stakeholders.
