Researchers on the stage - collaboration with Turku City Theatre

During a two-hour show in October 2021, seven researchers from the University of Turku took the main stage at the Turku City Theatre. The scientists captivated the audience with personal stories about their research, what they have learned, and what has inspired them in their careers.

How did the collaboration start and what did the researchers learn from their art coaches? How did the experience affect their thinking on science communications? Communications Coordinator Liisa Reunanen will present the ins and outs of the collaboration with Turku City Theatre and Professor of Biodiversity Ilari Sääksjärvi, who was one of the researchers braving the main stage, will share his personal experiences of the project.
