The universities in Turku, in close collaboration with Turku Science Park, have launched a joint Aboa Tech Talks webinar series this autumn focusing on emerging technologies and sustainable development. Aboa Tech Talks aims to highlight advanced and innovative technological research and education carried in the universities that can offer sustainable solutions to the complex global challenges of our time.
