Research and Innovation Leads to Development
Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences (SeAMK) conducts research, development and innovation (RDI) with a distinctly practical emphasis, serving teaching and supporting industrial small and medium enterprises (SME) and service production within the region. In addition, SeAMK’s RDI supports the implementation of Smart Specialization Strategy of South Ostrobothnia.
RDI is carried out in co-operation with regional and national enterprises and organizations. Student involvement in RDI projects is vital to their studies and their objectives of becoming acknowledged experts in their fields. Nearly 100 persons-years have been invested in RDI work annually. Approximately 70% of the RDI funding comes from external sources. Roughly 10% of RDI projects have international funding and are conducted with international partners.
