Welcome reception at Arken

Date: Monday 17 August 2020
Time: TBA
Address: Tehtaankatu 2, 20500 Turku

Our Research Services days starts in Åbo Akademi University’s quarters Arken, buildings which combines historical industrial and modern designs. In 1857, Jernmanufactur Bolag started their business and decided on letting G.Th.Chiewitz design five buildings for industrial use. It was here that the first tractors and radiators were built in Finland. A few more buildings was created during the 1930s and Åbo Akademi University’s restorations of the buildings was finished 2004. The buildings now hosts the Faculty of Arts, Psychology and Theology.

This inspirational setting which has been a hub of many technologies, innovations, research and dialogues is the perfect place to host our networking meetings and finally our Welcome Reception. Åbo Akademi University’s Vice Rector of Education Mikael Lindfelt will open 2020s Research Services Days.

Where can be better to start emerging horizons than at a place where history meets the future. Welcome!
