What we offer for students?

The resource-efficient business research group of Turku University of Applied Sciences offers possibilities for collaboration with companies for students from various fields. Instead of lectures we want to offer interesting and practical ways for a student to become a responsible and self-imposed expert in his/her own field.

  • Would you like to become an expert in circular economy? Are you interested in possibilities offered by our cooperation companies? Are you in the need of an internship or perhaps a job?
  • Would you be interested working with real assignments coming from real companies? Could you innovate in a camp environment overnight? Turku University of Applied Sciences has been arranging innovation camps such as InnoCamp and Challenge Goes Green. Taking part in these might interest you!
  • Want to do research and work together with other students in the summer or during the school year? Read experiences from students and join our research hatcheries.

In case you would be interested to join us or you have any questions, please contact us.

Through seeing what little steps can contribute to a more sustainable future, I now know more where I want my further career to be heading to. I also got another way of thinking – and that there is not only always one right solution way for challenges.
