Cooperation with Brunel University

Tampere University of Technology and Brunel University London initiated their partnership in 2015, with the aim of developing a key partnership between the institutions. After the merger, the institutions have intensified their co-operation by joint seed-funding calls and the research funding awarded by Research England awarded earlier this year. The award will accelerate the development of a strategic partnership between Brunel and Tampere University in Materials & Manufacturing, Biomedical Engineering, Structural Integrity, Digital Technology, Water Resources and Ageing & Wellness. It will deliver benefits to the UK and Finland in the form of research competitiveness, societal impact and innovation. The partnership and seed-funding calls have resulted in over 20 joint EU proposals and in several Finnish research funding applications.
