Defenders of Academic Work – SATY

The Finnish Association of Academic Researchers SATY and FUURT organise

Defenders of Academic Work discussion event

Thursday, 13 October from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.
On Zoom platform

Academics produce the knowledge that our society needs. The Finnish Union of University Researchers and Teachers (FUURT) works to support all academics as a unique science policy advocate.

Please join us to discuss how FUURT addresses the everyday life of academics and those that support academic work in advocacy work both locally and on the national level. We will also tell what kind of successes have recently been achieved through our advocacy activities. We invite you to share what you hope from our advocacy work in future, directly with the FUURT President.

The event will be held in either Finnish or English depending on the registered participants’ preferences.

Please also invite your colleague who is interested in FUURT! The participants will be offered a Kotipizza webstore coupon, worth 20 euros. With the personal code, you can order a pizza from the webstore. The code is valid from 13 October to 30 October 2022.

After the discussion, from 4 p.m., SATY invites you to the
