Tampere University was created in January 2019 by the merger of the University of Tampere and Tampere University of Technology, which joined forces to create a new foundation-based university. At the new University, technology and social sciences come together in a unique way.
Tampere University is the second largest university in Finland with over 19,000 degree students and 4,100 employees. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at our university. Tampere University awards nearly 4,000 degrees annually. About one-third of them are awarded in technological fields and about a quarter in social sciences.
The University’s research groups and projects conduct multidisciplinary research across institutional boundaries. The University annually produces approximately 3,200 scientific publications. Our missions in research, development and innovation are to maintain a just and participatory society, to promote health and well-being for all sections of the population, to build efficient and safe environments, and to ensure that social responsibility is respected also in the turmoil caused by digitalisation and the transformation of work.
The unit of Information and Knowledge Management participates in the VAM Realities project. The unit carries out research on value creation with new technologies (such as XR).
