Collaborators

High-quality multi-disciplinary research must include collaboration between true experts of the specific fields

Most of our research projects include collaborative links either in Finland, USA, Canada, Australia, UK, Switzerland, Netherlands, Germany or France. We have been very lucky by having the possibility to collaborate with many different types of experts. Current collaborative links are listed below.
