Research Day is an event organized jointly by the doctoral programme Utuling and the School of Language and Translation Studies, University of Turku. The event takes place on 24th April in Janus Hall, Kaivokatu 12, Turku.


We invite all master’s students, doctoral candidates, and other teachers and researchers working at the University of Turku or Åbo Akademi University to participate in Research Day.

In Research Day you can tell about your research projects be they in the process of being planned, about to be realized, finished or already once rejected. You may also tell others about your data, discuss ethical issues related to your study or seek research partners for a joint project application!
