The aim of the project is to increase, strengthen and systematize cooperation between universities and the working life of the region, companies and organizations. This will be done through the various methods of cooperation that will be piloted in the project, as well as by providing new education opportunities for lifelong learning.
The measures will be implemented in co-operation with the Universities of Jyväskylä and Vaasa, companies and organizations in the region, and degree students in the field of economics. Increased co-operation in working life and new opportunities for continuous learning aim to link business research, education and development activities into the geographical area of operation of the university center.
