The Finnish Multidisciplinary Doctoral Training Network on Educational Sciences (FinEd) organises annually a seminar for all of its members. This year, the pre-seminar is organised  together with The Finnish Educational Research Association,  the University of Lapland and University of Oulu.
 
The pre-seminar is a part of Finland’s centenary celebration, “Finland 100 Years”. The overall theme of the centenary year is ‘Together’, which is also a central denominator to the national FinEd Network with seven universities as its members:  Universities of Eastern Finland, Jyväskylä, Lapland, Tampere, Turku, Oulu and Åbo Akademi.
 
NB. The FinEd Network also warmly welcomes all the participants of the pre-seminar to the symposium in the main FERA Conference, entitled “In it together – Showcasing ongoing doctoral research in the FinEd network / Yhdessä – FinEd verkoston väitöstutkimuskavalkadi”.
