Explore TAMK's RDI Activities

Research, development and innovation open the door to a variety of opportunities. Our professionals’ expertise, students’ fresh ideas and partners’ development needs are united in our RDI. Diversity of views and dissemination of information are fruitful in all development – we create more impact together.

What is RDI?

Our RDI solve problems, create new possibilities and foresee future needs. We research, experiment, test and evaluate together with HEIs, companies, communities and the public sector. We try to make the world a better place in a range of fields from health, business and technology to learning, creativity and social involvement.

RDI create new possibilities, innovative ideas, concepts, business solutions, products, services and processes nationally and internationally. We help SMEs in commercialising their ideas. It is important for us to promote establishment of new spin-off companies.

Projects are working life cooperation at its best

In our working life projects, we apply research information to genuine development needs of the private and public sector. Open innovation ecosystems as well as testing and learning environments are an essential part of our multidisciplinary RDI.

The project impact may be new business, innovations, competence or better procedures. It is important that project outcomes continue to deliver value and new operations models are developed. RDI projects may be large or small, regional, national or international – they are all equally important for us.

The societal viewpoint is important in all our RDI, which supports education, Tampere Region business life and regional development. Our important funding sources are the European Social Fund (ESF), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), ministries’ programmes and Business Finland.
