Finding solutions to the complex challenges of our changing world calls for an ability to think and combine things in a novel way. Research and education are expected to provide interdisciplinary solutions and skills to create a responsible and sustainable future.
The University of Eastern Finland has identified four global challenges for which we seek to find solutions through our strong research areas rooted in the basic sciences and through research-based education that meets the challenges of tomorrow’s working life. These solutions call for multidisciplinary research collaboration, as well the identification and transparent use of different impact channels.
We build competence and generate new information in close interaction with the surrounding society. We strengthen this dialogue by making our education and research increasingly open. The university’s impact is the result of a high standard of research and high-level education.
