The first regional stakeholder group meeting of the InnoHEIs project gathered more than 20 experts representing business, academia and education, and public sector to discuss how to concretely improve the ways research and innovation infrastructures are utilized for the benefit of Pirkanmaa (Tampere) region in the South West of Finland.

The main drivers for maintaining the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry prominent in the Tampere Region include developing new and agile cooperation models for university-industry collaboration. This ensures the dialogue on future skills and competences and creating a common vision for more coordinated actions. The stakeholder group will continue its work during the whole duration of the InnoHEIs project until 2023.
