University of Eastern Finland

University of Eastern Finland joins TSLP event for the fifth time to network with startups and collaborators. The University of Eastern Finland is the most multidisciplinary university in Finland. Our high standard of interdisciplinary research and education respond to global challenges and build a sustainable future. Our research is ranked among the best in the world in several fields. We offer education in nearly 100 major subjects and we train experts for tomorrow’s changing labour market needs. 

We have chosen interdisciplinary, thematic Research Communities (RCs) as our concept to pursue world-class science in our strategic profile areas: 

  • Ageing, lifestyles and health 
  • Environmental change and sustainable use of natural resources 
  • Cultural encounters, mobilities and borders 
  • Diversifying learning and interaction 

The research lays a foundation for the profiles and contents of the university’s Bachelor’s, Master’s, and doctoral level education. Our profile areas and the RCs operating within them all have a clear management system that supports interdisciplinary collaboration in research and education between the faculties and departments.
