News

22.11.2017

DPDR doctoral candidates are invited to joint seasonal party organized for the doctoral students in four quite different, yet excellent doctoral programs of the University of Helsinki: Brain & Mind, LUOVA, DPDR, and ILS.

Let’s meet 5.12.2017 at 18:00 o’clock in Le Bonk with Street Food, Club Drinks, Slow Rhythms, and Good Company. The continental style club is reserved just for us until 22.00 o’clock we can stay longer if we like – there’s just some normal people joining the club at that time. And the bonus is we can continue until the very 100th birthday of Finland 4 o’clock in the morning December 6th!

So put your party gear on and join Europe’s best PhD Xmas Party!
The first 100 registrations can get in. Maybe the second 100 can also get in. Let’s see!
