The universities in Turku, in close collaboration with Turku Science Park, have launched a joint Aboa Tech Talks webinar series this autumn focusing on emerging technologies and sustainable development. Aboa Tech Talks aims to highlight advanced and innovative technological research and education carried in the universities that can offer sustainable solutions to the complex global challenges of our time.

The topic of the second Aboa Tech Talks is solar driven technologies and how researchers aim to address the major global sustainability challenges of our modern society. Solar powered technologies harness energy from sunlight, which is a main source of sustainable energy, and transform it into useable form in our daily lives. The goal of these technologies is to develop novel harvesting solutions for solar energy with higher conversion efficiencies. Aboa Tech Talks will stimulate a cooperation between the Universities, facilitate interaction with industry, and promote multidisciplinary education as an enabler of clean solar technology development in the Turku region.

Participants outside UTU, ÅAU, TUAS and Novia are invited to attend the event virtually.
The link to Flinga board to ask questions, and the link to join the virtual event will be sent to all registered participants one day before the event.
