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.

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.

First and foremost our development projects benefit other entities; companies, associations and organisations of the public sector.  

A successful development project may be a weapon for a new breakthrough. 

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

About 16 percent of our projects are international.

Lapland University of Applied Sciences is a partner to anyone who wants to develop, learn and achieve something new.
There is a demand for northernness elsewhere, too.
