Finnish Oikos Society

Finnish Oikos Society



Oikos Finland is one of five national societies comprising the Nordic Society Oikos. It holds meetings alternating annually with the NSO biennial conference. The goal of these meetings is both to present new and exciting ecological research and to provide a place where especially students and young researchers can present their work and develop future scientific networks

Oikos Finland donates a number of stipends for students to participate in the joint biennial Nordic meetings and awards an annual scholarship for the best PhD thesis in ecology and evolutionary biology.

In connection with the national meetings, Oikos Finland arranges student workshops on topics of general interest to PhD students and postdocs. For example our workshops have covered topics such as science communication and outreach for ecologists.

Oikos Finland will also support other minor workshops, arranged and applied for by members. The goal of these workshops is to promote networking among students and young researchers across Finnish institutions in the field of ecological research.
