The objective of the theme is to futher interdisciplinary open thinking and practice, as well as support the action of innovation platforms where students, research institutes and companies meet each others.
In addition, the City wants students and research organisations to take actively part on city development. The aim is to open these opportunities, and at the same time systematically build cooperation between the City, students and research institutes.
Waking up the interest of future talents on smart city issues plays also a significant role in the theme. Ensuring the attraction of Tampere as a studying place and center of knowhow is essential. This can be supported for example by offering interesting thesis topics and working life opportunities.
