We warmly invite you and your colleagues to an online I have a Dream event on 30.10. The main theme of the event is sleep and the effects of sleep on brain health and overall human well-being. The event starts with an inspiring Seminar (in Finnish) following with Neurochallenge event (in English and Finnish), where we develop new ideas and innovations. Neurochallenge is a hackathon-type fast developing event, where different challenges are solved by teams. Best teams will be rewarded.

Speakers at Friday's seminar include professor Miia Kivipelto, professor Reijo Sund, physician Henri Tuomilehto and author Anna Tommola. Challenges raised by companies and, for example, healthcare organizations will be addressed during 48h in multidisciplinary teams. You are welcome to both events to bring expertise, to network and learn from others, whether you’re a researcher, student, company representative or a stakeholder.

Registration for both events is open until October 28, 2020   

Event schedule:

Seminar 30.10. at 9 am – 3.30 pm
