Tampere is the European forerunner of innovation platforms
There is a large number of innovative platforms in the Tampere region helping businesses to develop their concepts, processes, products 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.
Innovation platforms offer
- companies the opportunity to develop and pilot new concepts,
- students the chance to implement actual development projects with clients and
- cities the possibility to network with service developers.
Innovation platforms generate results
New innovation centres are being developed in the Tampere Region in close co-operation with regional operators which include the city, the region, various corporations, universities and research institutions.
