This is how speed dating works

Researchers and participants circulate, meeting each other over a series of short “dates”, lasting 5 minutes each. This way, you get to ask questions and discuss with approx. nine researchers. During the conversations you can take notes and exchange contact information.

After speed dating, we will serve coffee, tea and snacks. Everyone can share insights gained during speed dating in a brief summary session. The artist Salla Lehtipuu will draw a picture presenting these insights as a memory for us all. There will also be time for mingling and continuing interesting conversations with researchers and other participants.
