Tampere3 - building the university for the future

Tampere University of Technology, University of Tampere, and Tampere University of Applied Sciences have joined forces in order to develop a new kind of mode of operation in the Finnish higher education.

The Tampere3 process will establish an inspiring and globally attractive environment for research and learning.

The new university will provide a unique hub for the interdisciplinary research on the economy, technology, health and society. The Tampere3 project is being prepared in cooperation with the Ministry for Education and Culture.

We undertake new challenges boldly, rapidly and innovatively. We do things differently – in addition to scientific research, knowledge accumulates by application, experimentation and joint development.

  • Multidisciplinary research leads the way for Tampere3
