Companies and organisations

Do you need an expert for your project?

Our research is often done in cooperation with companies, communities and other universities as well as research institutions. The forms of cooperation can be, for example, commonly funded research projects or research which has been commissioned. Research cooperation in the university is done in the academic schools, the research platforms, the research groups, the affiliated institutions as well as by individual researchers.

If you are interested in cooperating on research, you can either contact the school, platform or expert in question directly or through our Liaison Director Harry Linnarinne, tel. +358 29 449 8705.
