POST-RUSKA Meet your TUTA Colleagues for Lunch!

To follow up on the inclusiveness theme from previous RUSKA events, we encourage you to participate the Post-Ruska initiative, “Have Lunch with your Colleagues”. Fourteen groups of three (3) were randomly drawn at RUSKA – now all those TUTA employees, who didn’t attend RUSKA are welcome to sign up for the second random drawing of lunch groups. The drawing will be made on Thursday morning on November 10. Sign up before that here

Art Factory

Welcome to the sixth RUSKA day on Tuesday 25 October. This year we will visit the inspiring Art Factory in Porvoo. In the morning will focus on the intersections of sustainability and our work at TUTA. We will also cover the timely topic of machine learning supporting us in research and teaching.

During the day, ideas and thoughts can also be exchanged over breakfast, lunch, and naturally during the afternoon recreational activities. Don’t miss this contemporary walking tour of old and charming Porvoo full of surprises!
