SibA Research Days 2018 bringing music researchers and doctoral students together

The third annual SibA Research Days event, co-organized by the DocMus and MuTri Doctoral Schools, brings forward the research done at the Sibelius Academy of the University of the Arts Helsinki. During the two-day event, the post-doc researchers and doctoral students get together to present their work and discuss shared questions. This event is presented in the spirit of collaboration, exploration and discovery. The aim is to provide a space, where students and teachers from the various artistic, scientific and applied research disciplines can come together to learn from and connect to one another; to discover and examine similarities and differences; to collaborate on problem-solving and shared areas of interest.

SibA Research Days 2018 will be held in the Helsinki Music Centre. The working language is English and most of the events are open to all.
