Vappu Renko

Researcher

Presentation

I have worked as a researcher at Cupore since October 2017. My tasks focus especially on cultural services and policies on municipal and regional levels.

I have master’s degrees in political science (University of Turku) and art history (University of Helsinki). I am also a PhD student at University of Jyväskylä. My dissertation examines regional cultural policies in Finland and Sweden. Before Cupore I have worked as a researcher at University of Jyväskylä and as an administrator and coordinator in various cultural organisations.

In 2022–24 I am Cupore’s representant in Kulturanalys Norden’s steering group.
