6. Purpose of processing personal data

According to the Univer­sities of Applied Sciences Act, the mission of univer­sities of applied sciences is to provide higher education for profes­sional expert jobs based on the requi­re­ments of working life and its development and on the premises of academic research and academic and artistic education and to support the profes­sional growth of students. They shall also carry out applied research, development and innovation activities and artistic activities that serve education in univer­sities of applied sciences, promote industry, business and regional development and regenerate the industrial structure of the region. In carrying out their mission, univer­sities of applied sciences shall promote lifelong learning. These are statutory tasks.

The Draft Program® ( is a program at Karelia University of Applied Sciences that promotes the emergence of entrepre­neurship in higher education insti­tu­tions. The program provides support for teams selected for the program by providing infor­mation, organising training workshops, and providing funding for purchases needed when commercia­lising the partici­pants’ business ideas and experi­menting them. Personal data is collected within the Draft Program® for conducting the application process and for informing the selected teams about new applica­tions and training workshops. In order to monitor the development budget allocated to the teams partici­pating the program, purchases made within the program are stored together with the name of the contact person of the team. In addition, anony­mised personal infor­mation is gathered in activity reports that are submitted to program partners as well as in the development of program activities. The anony­mised data collected within the program can be used, for example, in research activities in the field of entrepre­neurship and innovation, but a separate research permit from Karelia UAS will be requested for this purpose.
