Kurtén Club starts again this autumn. Björn Kurtén Club is a forum for everyone interested in paleontology. Main participants are paleontology students, researchers and professors. This year, we have every other week a presentation/introduction, held either by one of the group members or a visiting lecturer, and every other week a group meeting/conversation session. Visit our blog for more information: https://blogs.helsinki.fi/bk-club/ .
First meeting, a special lecture, will be held next Wednesday, 12.9.2012, in Viikki, see below. Next meetings will be held every Tuesday at 16.00(-17.00) in the C108, Physicum, Kumpula (unless otherwise announced). The program will be available on Kurtén Clubs blog (https://blogs.helsinki.fi/bk-club/schedule/). Suggestions for possible topics and speakers are most welcome.
Björn Kurtén Club and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology jointly invite you to a special seminar:
