The Research Exhibition of Energy

What is the latest in energy related academic research in the Vaasa region? Find out at the Research Exhibition of Energy!

University of Vaasa cooperates with companies, communities and other universities as well as research institutions. The forms of research cooperation can be, for example, commonly funded research projects or research which has been commissioned. Research cooperation in the university is done in the academic schools, the research platforms, the research groups, the affiliated institutions as well as by individual researchers.

The exhibition is free for visitors and brought to you by the research platforms of University of Vaasa; Digital Economy, VEBIC and InnoLab. Welcome!

Organised by University of Vaasa, research platforms Digital Economy, VEBIC and InnoLab

Our multidisciplinary research platforms combine our strong disciplinary knowledge with prevailing global trends. They are also an integral tool in the transformation and renewal of the University’s operations. We utilize them to advance multi-, cross- and inter-disciplinary research to help address the complex challenges facing our society. In addition to finding solutions to complex problems, our research findings also give rise to new theoretical frameworks, new scientific thinking or new areas of scientific enquiry. Digital Economy examines the innovations made possible by new technologies and their impact on individuals, organizations, industry and society as a whole from the perspective of different sciences. Vaasa Energy Business Innovation Center VEBIC strives to meet the global needs of energy production, energy business and sustainable social development. Innovation and Entrepreneurship, InnoLab explores open innovation, user innovation, public sector reform and entrepreneurship.
