LIFE SCIENCE CLUSTER IN THE TAMPERE REGION
Working together for a healthier world Biomaterials Health care processes ICT and signal processing Stem cells Regenerative medicine Drug development Implantable spare parts Biodegradable materials Bioabsorbable implants and devices Human spare parts Implants for mending bones Monitoring and imaging Sensors and measurement solutions Assistive technologies Ophthalmology medicine Mitochondrial genetics Cancer Vaccines Tampere Region is a globally important location for developing innovations that combine medicine, biology, and technology. We have a world-class research on e.g. following subjects:
What is the Life Science Cluster about? ACTIVE COLLABORATION BETWEEN ALL KEY PLAYERS DIVERSE COMPANY BASE Devices, ICT, software, integration, pharma, services, biomaterials LINKED SERVICE PROVIDERS Patient hotel and senior housing service concept, private hospital and health services, sports institutes ENABLERS AT SCIENCE PARK KAUPPI Provide fast testing of innovations in genuine health care surroundings FUNDING AND EXPERTISE Easily available for both companies and researchers MODERN INNOVATION PLATFORMS AND CLUSTER COORDINATION Boost local and global networking and support start-ups RESEARCH AND EDUCATION Unique combination of Bio – Meds – Tech -expertise
Innovation platforms for next-generation healthcare The Kauppi campus The Kauppi Campus consists of: Institute of Biomedical Technology School of Medicine School of Health Sciences The biotechnology hub Finn-Medi Tampere University Hospital A number of healthcare R&D companies Kauppi campus in 2020: health professionals 5000– customers students a 500m investment in total Other cross-disciplinary innovation platforms Mediapolis Mediapolis is an international campus that concentrates on content production and information and communications technology, where companies and students work side-by-side. The New Factory is an environment for open innovation where ideas can be processed into prototypes, pilot projects, products and services, new business and new jobs. Campus Arena Completed in 2015, Campus Arena will be cross- disciplinary hub of science, research and technology in the heart of the Tampere University of Technology campus.
