Winning through collaboration!

Lapland UAS’s research, development and innovation (RDI) activities are multidisciplinary and almost unparalleled in scope among Finnish universities of applied sciences. RDI is closely linked with teaching.

We succeed because of the conditions, not in spite of them.

Knowledge of northern conditions is a basic part of our life. Our teachers and RDI professionals are experts in innovative research and development having extensive experience in business life.

A successful development project may be a weapon for a new breakthrough. First and foremost our development projects benefit other entities; companies, associations and organisations of the public sector.  

The most significant providers of our financing are the EU and Business Finland – the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation. About 23 percent of our projects are international.

Strategic choices


Instead of traditional faculties, we work in multidisciplinary competence groups that also function as innovation platforms.

The competence required by livelihoods, work and professions is changing, and our response is new, future-oriented competence.
