In Finland the standard voltage is 230 V. The standard frequency is 50 Hz. The power sockets that are used are of type F.
You can use your electric appliances in Finland, if the standard voltage in your country is in between 220V - 240V (as in the UK, Europe, Australia and most of Asia and Africa). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V - 127V (as in the US, Canada and most South American countries), you need a power (voltage) converter.
EU or EEA travellers - As proof of health insurance, you need the European health insurance card, or EHIC for short. These cards can be obtained from your health insurance. Also, you have to show your identity card.
If you need a doctor, go to a public health agency: Advice Centre (consultorio), ambulance (ambulatorio), health centre (centro de salud) or a hospital. If a specialist is needed, you must be referred to by a general practitioner (GP). Please note, that the costs of dental treatment are yours.
Also, should you need hospital treatment, you will be referred to by the doctor.
The statutory health insurance recommends foreign health insurance. Certain services are not accepted by health insurance companies, such as a medical retransformation, even if it is medically necessary, as well as a free choice of doctor.
It is strongly recommended that you take out insurance to cover any potential loss of registration fees, travel and accommodation costs that might result from any medical condition or accident that may preclude your attendance at the conference, or cause you to seek medical advice during your stay in the UK.
All conference locations being used by AMEE will be strictly no smoking.
Helsinki’s climate is typical of its northerly situation. Its intermediate climate combines characteristics of both a maritime and a continental climate. The proximity of the Arctic Ocean and the North Atlantic creates cold weather, while the Gulf Stream brings in warmer air.
