ABOAGORA – BETWEEN ARTS AND SCIENCES is a symposium which brings together various aspects of academia, arts, and society. The symposium consists of interdisciplinary discussions, workshops, and diverse artistic interventions.  This exciting annual event offers a forum for researchers, artists, and the public to establish new dialogues and form novel collaborations.

Aboagora 2017 will take place on August 23-25 at the Sibelius Museum in Turku, Finland.

The Aboagora Symposium also organizes the annual and international Falling Walls Lab Turku innovation contest for young academics and entrepreneurs.

This year’s competition will be held on May 24 at the University of Turku.



The Symposium is organized by the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, and the Åbo Akademi University Foundation. In 2017, the event is supported by The Swedish Cultural Foundation in Finland (Svenska Kulturfonden) and The TOP Foundation (TOP-Säätiö).
