Research and education cooperation

There is an essential connection between Digipolis’s operations and companies’ innovation environments, a central part of which are research and education organisations.

Innovative growth companies have various needs. Digipolis strives to refine the needs of its customers into research and education projects. Digipolis acts as an intermediary organisation between companies and research & education.

Furthermore, Digipolis provides leveraged financing for research and education projects carried out in selected focus areas, such as those dealing with industry, mining, associated services and wood construction.

Together, Digipolis’s own development projects and programmes, new initiatives and cooperative activities in the field of research & education form a remarkably potent combination.

Digipolis’s closest partners are the Lapland University of Applied Sciences and Vocational College Lappia. Furthermore, it regularly engages in development-related cooperation with organisations such as the University of Lapland, the University of Oulu, the University of Tampere and Aalto University.

Digipolis has more than 50 domestic and international partners in the fields of research, education and innovation.
