Networks - knowledge exchange across industries and national borders

Research, development and innovation activities at Arcada are conducted within a framework of national and international academic networks. We are actively co-operating with representatives of various businesses to produce and commercialise the products we create.

As the RDI activities have gained further momentum at Arcada, the need of strategic partnerships and networks has increased. In recent years the Nordic-Baltic co-operation has increased in particular. Teachers, researchers, students, and professional organisations are working together across national borders to create new knowledge.

Also, on an EU-27 level Arcada has participated in project co-operation for improving knowledge transfer between universities and companies. In addition, Arcada experts play an active role within the evaluation processes for EU funding for research and education that takes place in Brussels.
