Each year the thematic workshop will invite leading experts in the disciplines related to INVEST to present their work. The aim is to provide early career stage PhD researchers with the opportunity to discuss their work with more senior researchers working on similar topics to INVEST, to extend the international research network of PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers and to build international research collaborations at the more senior levels.
All times are in Helsinki (EEST) time.
