Entrepreneurship and innovation are cross-cutting and still rising themes in Finnish working life. As a result, it has been raised as one of the co-operation areas of 3UAS. Cooperation is carried out both in terms of studies and research, development and innovation activities. 

Degree students at Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia can choose the courses they want to attend to from 3UAS. In particular, the area of cooperation focuses on the creation, testing, and piloting of intensive implementations and entirely new learning concepts. In addition to degree students, we offer studies for the target group of continuous learning. Intensive courses are typically working life-oriented concepts implemented in close business cooperation, in which students meet representatives of working life and look for solutions to the challenges of working life. Check out the intensive courses here.

In addition, we support campus incubator activities, student entrepreneurship and provide joint business services, events and advice.

In terms of research, development and innovation, digital and sustainable innovation and entrepreneurship are at the center. In addition, the cooperation area is looking for ways to implement successful commercial concepts. 

We are socially influential by working closely with companies in the 3UAS areas, and by making extensive use of both national and international ecosystems and networks. We work closely with the other 3UAS cooperation areas.
