Lapland UAS publications

Our expertise and results of RDI work are shown in publications that serve trade, production, working life as well as education.

With the publication series Pohjoisen tekijät (the Northern Factors) we launch books, blog articles, videos and podcast recordings concerning

  • RDI project outcome and results
  • Research
  • Learning materials
  • Other distinguished and inspiring materials based on our professional work.

Regardless the format, all publications are reviewed by the Publication team or the Editorial board.

Lumen Journal

Lumen is our journal coming out three times a year. Each issue has a specific theme. The main language of the journal is Finnish, but we do publish international issues, too.

All editorials and columns are available in English, too.
