Professor Sergej Zilitinkevich lived and worked through the turmoil that defined the twentieth-century Russia: siege of Leningrad, prison camps and the fall of the Soviet Union. He was able to create an extraordinary scientific career contributing to environmental physics and atmospheric sciences. In 1990, professor Zilitinkevich left the Soviet Union and continued his successful academic work in Scandinavia and Germany. Today, he works at the Finnish Meteorological Institute and the University of Helsinki and holds the ERC Proof of Consept and Academy of Finland grants.

Welcome to the event during which professor Zilitinkevich tells about his inspiring life and scientific career. Opening words by Academy Professor Markku Kulmala (Atmospheric Sciences, University of Helsinki) and Professor, Director Markku Kivinen (Aleksanteri Institute, University of Helsinki).

Akatemiatutkija Simo Huotari nimettiin ensimmäisenä suomalaisena DESY:n fotonitieteiden neuvoa-antavaan komiteaan.

Saksan elektronisynkrotroni, DESY eli Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron, on maailman johtavia hiukkaskiihdytinkeskuksia. DESY:n fotonitieteiden keskus koordinoi maailman kirkkaimpia säteilylähteitä, joista suurimpia ovat Hampurissa sijaitsevat PETRA III -synkrotroni, niin sanottujen pehmeiden röntgensäteiden FLASH-vapaaelektronilaser, ja rakenteilla oleva European XFEL, suurenergisten röntgensäteiden vapaaelektronilaser.

A coffee cart of the Research Services of the University and Helsinki Innovation Services Ltd (HIS) will visit Kumpula on Monday, September 21 between 1pm to 4pm. The cart can be found in the entrance hall of Chemicum. Coffee and information on the services provided by the Research Services, e.g. And Action Impact Clinic for Researchers, is available.

2. And Action Impact Clinic for Researchers starts again on 24.9.2015
How does your research improve the world? Turn your ideas into action and get funded! And Action Impact Clinic for Researchers starts again on September 24th.

And Action Impact Clinic is targeted to the researchers of all fields. Join the clinic and get personal guidance on impact for Horizon 2020, Tekes and Strategic Research Council funding proposals. Improve your proposals by boosting the societal benefits of your research. Get support from your peers and expert advice. Find the right instruments and tools to get backing for your projects.

In autumn 2015 the clinic will be held on the City Centre Campus of the University of Helsinki every second week on Thursday. For further information and registration, please see the clinic's website:

The people who benefit most from the clinic are post-docs and more senior researchers who do not have extensive experience from impact. You get the most out of the clinic when you have an idea for a research project but have not yet written your proposal. However, you are warmly welcome at any time!

The clinic is organized by the University of Helsinki Research Services with the support of Helsinki Innovation Services Ltd (HIS).

·         Currently open calls can be found at the EU’s Research & Innovation Participant Portal at > Funding opportunities

·         If you are planning to apply Horizon 2020 (incl. ERC) funding, please first familiarize yourself with the University's guidance available in Flamma at

·         Do also remember to register as a scientific expert to European Commission, if you have not done that already. As an expert / evaluator you will gain truly valuable information about EU's research funding, project building and what is needed for an excellent, competitive H2020 proposal (plus fees and reimbursements). More information:

5. The call for ERC Starting Grant is open, deadline on 17.11.2015.
ERC Starting Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme. Applicant Principal Investigators must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of their scientific proposal. The Principal Investigator shall have been awarded their first PhD at least 2 and up to 7 years prior to 1 January 2016. The effective elapsed time since the award of the first PhD can be reduced in certain properly documented circumstances.

·         V Kansallinen turvallisuustutkimuksen seminaari 20.10.2015


20.10. järjestetään V Kansallinen turvallisuustutkimuksen seminaari - Turvallisuus polarisoituvassa maailmassa. Seminaarin ohjelma löytyy osoitteesta: ja ilmoittautumislinkki: Ilmoittautumisten deadline on 5.10.2015 ja paikkoja on rajallinen määrä.

Viidennessä Kansallisessa turvallisuustutkimuksen seminaarissa käsitellään turvallisuutta polarisaation eri näkökulmista - esimerkiksi maantieteellisestä, taloudellisesta, sosiaalisesta, kulttuurisesta, poliittisesta ja ideologisesta. Turvallisuustutkimusta tarkastellaan sekä uhkien että mahdollisuuksien näkökulmasta, huomioiden nykytilanne sekä tulevaisuuden ennakointitarpeet. Seminaaripäivä rakentuu näiden aiheiden paneelikeskustelujen ja avainpuheenvuorojen ympärille. Seminaaripäivän tavoitteena on saattaa yhteen tutkimusorganisaatioiden ja valtionhallinnon toimijoita ja tarkastella tutkimusta tiedon ja päätöksenteon näkökulmista.

Tavoitteena on saada päivään hedelmällistä keskustelua, vuorovaikutusta tutkimus- ja valtionhallinnon toimijoiden välille ja kehittää eteenpäin tutkimustiedon tarvitsijoiden ja tutkimustiedon tuottajien yhteistyötä. Hyödynnämme päivässä myös viestiseinää kommentointiin ja ideointiin.

Seminaariin toivotaan erityisesti myös tutkimusjohtajien, professorien ja sellaisten toimijoiden osallistumista, joilla on mahdollisuutta viedä turvallisuustutkimusta - ja hankkeita eteenpäin organisaatioissaan. Samoin myös tutkimustiedon tarvitsijoita, jotka ovat avainasemassa tutkimustarpeita ja -ongelmia määritettäessä.

Kind regards,

Ulrika Backman & Satu Väisänen
