The vision of prof. Hokkanen, who is also is the coordinator of a new UA Thematic Network on “Sustainable Production and Foraging of Natural Products in the North“, is to connect the ICE 2020 with the work and activities of the UArctic.
Espoo, the second largest city in Finland, is a vibrant city full of contrasts. In Espoo, modern architecture, large corporations and culture meet the unspoilt willderness. This innovative environment and spirit, complemented by the main campus of Aalto University, attracts continuous interest from science and research professionals worldwide.
Large natural areas are characteristic of Espoo: seashores, the archipelago, the wilderness in nature reserves and the waterways of the lake highlands. The cultural landscapes, constructed environments and natural areas of Espoo are like Finland in miniature. This, combined to Espoo’s location, right next to capital Helsinki, creates vast opportunities to all sorts of business events. With Helsinki just a 15 minute ride away combine an event in Espoo with the Finnish capital and you have the very best of both worlds.
