Green building blocks for built environment -hybrid seminar

09.11.2022 klo: 09.30 - 17.00



The SCEC-seminar is here again! The two-day hybrid seminar will cover topics such as life cycle of materials, steel and bio-based functional substances among other things. On-site attendees will also get to visit HAMK Tech’s laboratories on Visamäki campus’ premises.

On the first day of the seminar, November 8th, the program is in Finnish, focusing on development and research activities, financing, competence development and cooperation opportunities.

1st seminar day event page can be found here.

On the second day of the seminar, November 9th, the program will be conducted in English, focusing on research activities. During the day, international partners will be giving presentations on their research activities and cooperation opportunities will be discussed.
