Partner Day 2019

This year Finland is happy to host the annual EAIE conference in Helsinki. Make the most of your stay in Finland and visit LUT University and Saimaa UAS on Tuesday, September 24th.

Come and meet colleagues, get an introduction to the Finnish culture, hear about few research highlights, visit Jamie Hyneman center (rapid prototyping center), tour the modernized campus and get a glimpse of the famous Saimaa lakeland. Three separate programme tracks for the afternoon are designed to meet our guests' expectations.

No transport worries, the city of Lappeenranta is only two hours away from Helsinki and we'll arrange the train transport.


From Helsinki to Lappeenranta, early birds meet at Helsinki railway station
7 am* Departure from Helsinki by train, coffee and snacks available with light entertainment to wake you up.
9 am* Arrival in Lappeenranta and bus transport to the campus.

From Lappeenranta to Helsinki
4:00 pm   Departure from the campus to the railway station.
4:30 pm* Departure from Lappeenranta by train.

* The train timetable will be confirmed to the registered participants in August.


Interested? Just sign up.

Seats will be filled in the order of registration due to the limited number of places in the train coach (max 2 persons per university).
Note: this partner day is not a part of the official EAIE programme, therefore free of charge.
