Joyous International Alumni day in Brussels in October 2023

The yearly International Alumni Day was held in Brussels at Helsinki EU-office, and was a huge success. This was the 15th Alumni Day abroad and the 2nd one in Brussels. Participants got to hear about what is up at Hanken, a greeting from Helsinki EU-Office, and speakers from Hanken Hanna Silvola, Mikael Laakso and Kaisa Penttilä shared their latest research with the audience. The evening rounded up with cocktails and networking. 

Thank you to everyone who attended!
