Research and Development


Aim of the active Research and Development program (i.e. R&D Excellence) of the three Universities of Applied Sciences is to combine know-hows and specialities of each school.

The three Universities of Applied Sciences have created a common Research and Development strategy with three heads.

  • A prosperous person in a safe environment
  • Sustainable urban development
  • Change  in work and skills

Strategic heads link to the phenomena of our time. They give potential to create phenomenon-driven innovations and resonate internationally.

In the R&D-operation, 3AMK Universities of Applied Sciences build strong, common concentrations of expertise in close cooperation. Cooperation strengthens the know-how of the Metropolitan Area and its international competitiveness. At the same time it supports the prerequisites of business and economic life.

In R&D activity, Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia benefit from the latest methods of common development. This makes the commercialization of the research results easier and boosts the development of the society and the endurance of the economy.
