The programme will consist of four parallel tracks, joint networking events and possibilities to visit JYU departments and faculties.

All sessions are run as workshops and they are based on active participation as well as sharing of best practices.

Due to time constraints, we cannot unfortunately include general introductions of participant's own universities in the sessions However, you will have a lot of  networking opportunities during the social programme.

This is a preliminary programme, and University of Jyväskylä reserves the right to make changes to the programme.

Please note that the sessions are organized in different buildings, and the letter/s of the session room defines the building, for example RUU is in Ruusupuisto building. All buildings are within walking distance from each other. JYU campus map
