Kuopio Brain & Mind gives a boost to neuroscience’s success story in eastern Finland
Kuopio Brain & Mind, a new regional network of Neurocenter Finland, promotes research and collaboration in the field of brain health in eastern Finland.
Established by the University of Eastern Finland and Kuopio University Hospital, the objective of the Kuopio Brain & Mind network is to enhance collaboration between the university, hospital and business sectors, and to increase the visibility of neuroscience stemming from eastern Finland.
In addition to Kuopio, Neurocenter Finland has regional Brain & Mind networks in Helsinki, Tampere, Turku, Jyväskylä and Oulu. Most of them are now launching their operations. In Kuopio, the activities began in May when Anna Karjalainen, Regional Manager of Kuopio Brain & Mind, initiated her work.
