Welcome to Jyväskylä

On behalf of the organizing team, we would like to invite you to join us for the 4th (Hybrid) Research Symposium of the PBS‐Europe Network, which will be held at the University of Jyväskylä (Finland).

You can reach Jyväskylä by train from Helsinki in even less than 3,5 hours, and from Tampere in 1,5 hours. If you fly to Helsinki, you can get on the Jyväskylä train connecting easily directly from the airport with just one change of trains. Take the Ring Rail Line train from Helsinki Airport to Tikkurila and change trains there. The journey from the airport to Tikkurila railway station takes about 8 minutes and trains leave every 10 minutes. There are direct train connections from Tikkurila to Jyväskylä, but in some cases you will have to change trains at Tampere. Check timetables and buy your tickets in the VR web shop here.

Jyväskylä is easily accessible also by bus. Check the long-distance bus schedules and prices here. Matkahuolto occasionally has promotions where you can travel to Jyväskylä at bargain prices. The low-budget bus company Onnibus also operates to Jyväskylä. You can find the Onnibus schedule and prices here.

Thursday’s program will be held at the University of Jyväskylä in the Ruusupuisto building. On Friday, the program starts in the Agora building and the afternoon will be in Mattilanniemi.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Finland!
