FITech Forum

You’re warmly welcome to the second FITech Forum of 2018 on May 21st in the always sunny Turku! During the Forum we’ll be picking up where we left off last time, namely co-creating the foundational principles of FITech and working on the FITech Way of Learning.

The core of FITech is to be a joint effort of students, companies and universities. Therefore we’re inviting people from these three groups as well as some other important stakeholders to work on the very essence of the FITech concept with us. A lot has happened (and will happen) during this Spring, but we’ll take it easy on official presentations and shine the spotlight on what you envision a new way of doing higher education to be.

The program of the day will last from 10am to 4pm. We’d love it if you could join us for the whole duration of the program, but we understand if you have to leave after the morning session. This is why we’ve designed the program so that the first session is especially relevant for all participant groups. The afternoon session is highly relevant for anyone interested in the future of education as well as all students and university staff.

Please register to the FITech Forum by May 10th here:
