Fancy a planetary plate?
The majority of the world’s food is consumed in cities and the demand for food is expected to double by 2050. We need changes in food system to meet this demand.
The dilemma of the green shift
We need clean energy in the fight against global warming. At the same time we need batteries and more minerals to power them than the earth can provide.
Do I have the guts to participate?
Everyone seems to agree that public debate should be improved. However, people have different views about what is wrong. Besides, everything is not terrible.
Together for deeper knowledge
Unit has a mission to offer not only research-based knowledge and fresh insights but also highlight the impacts that new discoveries are having on our daily lives. Although the magazine focuses on technology, health and society in line with the strategy of Tampere Universities, the articles showcase the broad spectrum of our research and teaching and feature our faculty, students, alumni and other members of our diverse community. Unit is published by Tampere Universities. Editorial decisions are made by the Communications unit.
