Tampere3 Library is Created in Cooperation

The staff of the three libraries has already been planning the services of the future library for months. In the library projects, we are developing the customer service processes, the services for publishing and open science as well as the training offered on information seeking. At the same time, we are preparing the acquisition of a new library system. When realized, it will renew the library's digital services to better suit the changing customer needs of today and even tomorrow.

Shared vision drives forward the new higher education community in Tampere

The university regulations have stirred up widespread discussion within parts of the university community. The regulations have been perceived to include passages that are contrary to the constitution of Finland and a complaint has been filed with the Parliamentary Ombudsman. It is important for any issues to be thoroughly investigated. If problems are found, they will surely be appropriately addressed by the Transitional Board of the new university.

In this blog post, we reflect on the Tampere3 project from the perspective of health technology education.

Are companies expected to fund the general development of a university?

A new Board has been appointed for Tampere new university as a concrete example of the start of something new. We at Tampere Chamber of Commerce and Industry have observed the preparations towards Tampere3 with a keen eye from near and far. We did not participate in the appointment of the new Board, but ever since its establishment the Tampere3 project has been making excellent progress – for which I want to thank everyone involved. Once again, our region and stakeholders have demonstrated their ability to embrace and implement structural changes.
