The atmosphere in Tampere is very active, open and diverse. Easy networking across different industries, and co-operation projects between large companies and the tightly knit startup community are very common. Business Tampere coordinates several business and innovation ecosystems to boost collaboration between the city, university community and companies.
The City of Tampere is a smart city development platform where new solutions are sought for housing, transport and services.
Innovation platforms operate on the basis of open co-operation, which is implemented and facilitated between those operating in the public, private or third sectors in order to develop new products and services.
In Tampere, tradition is particularly related to change; the city and its industries are proof of a continuous tradition of innovation throughout its history of more than two hundred years.
