Our new community was created at the beginning of 2019, when the University of Tampere (UTA) and Tampere University of Technology (TUT) were merged to establish the new foundation-based Tampere University that will maintain close ties with Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TAMK).
Together we are building a new model for higher education and research in Finland. Our new community has brought together research and education, for example, in the fields of technology, health and society. We are creating a multidisciplinary, inspirational and globally attractive research and learning environment to explore new frontiers in interdisciplinary research.
The guiding principles of our university community are:
- Combining world-class research and innovation activities
- Multidisciplinary learning and lifelong partnerships
- Unique expertise in developing applications that benefit industry, business and the public sector
Tampere University is one of the most multidisciplinary universities in Finland. Almost all internationally recognised fields of study are represented at our university. Our research groups and projects conduct multidisciplinary research across institutional boundaries. The research undertaken at our Centres of Excellences (CoE) ranges from game culture studies to tumour genetics.

We believe in humanity and science
With our world facing new challenges, there is a need for science and the scientific community to take a more active role. This is what we are doing in Tampere.
Our guiding principles are firmly based on the ideals of science and erudition. We know that by offering more opportunities for learning and scientific inquiry, we will be able to find effective solutions that will benefit people and societies.
Our world needs not only bold collaboration that transcends disciplinary boundaries but also a belief in humanity and in our ability to create a better future for us all. Because ultimately – human potential is unlimited.
