More about the partnership
The University of Edinburgh and the University of Helsinki entered into a strategic partnership in 2019. Together, they will create common places for doctoral students in two fields where both universities have excellent experience and world-class research infrastructure: human genomics and forestry.
The global covid19 pandemic or the Brexis have not halted the partnership between the two universities: four graduate students began their work as planned.
