Research, Devel­opment and Innovation

“Success grows from expertise and people”

The needs of research, devel­opment and innovation activ­ities (RDI) in Karelia UAS arise in practise from business and working life. RDI activity aims at the devel­opment and creation of new and already existing services, products, methods, facil­ities, processes and solving practical problems. Examples of RDI services are commis­sioned research, surveys and analysis, students’ practical work, final projects and different short and long-term co-operation projects.

Karelia University of Applied Sciences is a central part of the regional innovation ecosystem. As a competent and innov­ative partner we want to foster the success of the whole region. You, your company or community have a chance to benefit from our versatile and applicable know-how, networks and experience.
