On 14th of May, a delegation of researchers from University of Nottingham Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences is visiting University of Tartu and Estonian University of Life Sciences. The aim of this visit is to find partners for research collaboration, joint PhD student projects and teaching exchange programs.
We welcome all those who are interested to join and take advantage of this opportunity to discuss potential research collaboration with scientists from one of the World´s top universities. Each of Nottingham’s academics will give a short overview of their labs and the research they do in the hope of finding partners/collaborators in Tartu.
The meeting will be held at Chemicum building, Ravila 14A, in room 1020. Presentations will begin at 11:00. In order to attend, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 2nd of May.
