The CHIST-ERA Projects Seminar 2024 will take place on a cruise from Helsinki, Finland to Stockholm, Sweden and back on 16-18 April 2024. 
The event brings together researchers involved in the ongoing CHIST-ERA funded projects and representatives of the research funding organisations.

Not only the coordinator, all project project participants including post-docs and students are welcome to join.


  • Remind the broader CHIST-ERA picture, including the follow-up process and objectives;
  • Exchange impressions about funded projects, meet in person and listen to the researchers presenting their projects;
  • Strengthen the scientific communities working in the topics of the CHIST-ERA calls and support effort toward new collaborative and interdisciplinary research.

As a further objective, the seminar contributes to the long-term assessment of CHIST-ERA calls and the shaping of CHIST-ERA in the long-run.
