Congressus Internationalis Fenno-Ugristarum is the most important international academic event for research on the Finno-Ugric (Uralic) languages, the cultures and history of their speakers. Since 1960, the Congresses have been organized every five years. The 13th congress in 2020 will be the first one to ever be organized outside the three Finno-Ugric nation-states or Russia.
