Tampere University and Tampere University of Applied Sciences constitute the Tampere university community. Our community was created at the beginning of 2019, when the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology were merged establishing the new foundation-based Tampere University that maintains close ties with Tampere University of Applied Sciences.
Together we are building a new model for higher education and research in Finland. Our new community brings together research and education, for example, in the fields of economics, technology, health and society. We have made it our mission to address the greatest challenges facing our society and to create new opportunities.
The guiding principles of our community are to combine world-class research and innovation activities, promote multidisciplinary learning and lifelong partnerships, and generate unique expertise in developing applications that benefit industry, business and the public sector.
