International Week for Teachers and RDI-Staff

ICT City, Joukahaisenkatu 3 27.3.2017 16:00

The Faculties of Business, ICT and Chemical Engineering and Health and Well-being welcome You to TUAS International Week in March 27 – 31, 2017!

The week will give you the opportunity to exchange ideas and plan future cooperation with our teachers, staff and R&D-experts as well as share your expertise with our students. Part of the programme is organized together with the both faculties giving the guests an opportunity for multiprofessional cooperation.

The both faculties organize their own conference days based on the lectures, workshops and / or presentations of the guests as well as our own staff.   Feel free to send us your case study presentation, a workshop or a lecture. Please note that the audience will be multidisciplinary.

As part of the programme we will organize an auction where you can pitch (max 5 min.) your cooperation or project idea e.g. RDI, study modules, best practices and find partners. The week will give an opportunity to build future cooperation on these ideas.

Entrepreneurship

Today’s work environment values an entrepreneurial attitude. Our students learn this attitude and the needed skills in various learning environments, such as BusinessAcademies in Salo and Turku. Student-owned and run co-ops design and implement tailor-made development projects to meet organizations’ needs, from short assignments to large-scale and longer undertakings. For students, project work provides working life competences and valuable contacts. For companies, the projects offer possibilities to make use of the latest applied research and innovative solutions.

 

Materials Engineering & Recycling

Circular economy is a leading force in Chemical and Materials Engineering research groups. The aim of the research groups is to support and strengthen the competence of companies in solutions on sustainable development, resource efficiency and circular economy. The students are doing a great part of their practical studies in the research groups. Both the research groups and the students utilize laboratory facilities in chemical engineering with its pilot and analysis equipment.

 

Digitalization & ICT

Digitalization and ICT belong to the focus areas of TUAS. We are very interested in developing existing processes and creating new innovations utilizing the opportunities provided by digital tools and technologies. We are also studying how the different forms of digitalization, change the internal and external relationships of organizations and, more broadly, their operational environments. Examples of the key expertize areas related to the different aspects of digitalization at TUAS, are eHealth, different UX/UI technologies, cybersecurity and technologies behind the Internet of Things.

Health Promotion 

Changes in the demography, ways of life and environment create novel challenges for health promotion. In cooperation with different actors, TUAS’ research, development and teaching activities develop innovative models of operation and practices to promote people’s mental, physical and social health. According to the national focus areas, the targets are ways of life and the healthiness of different environments, preventing accidents and infectious diseases and decreasing the differences in health between demographic groups.

 

Increasing Inclusion

Increasing inclusion is one of the focus areas of TUAS’ strategy. Inclusion is an essential means to prevent social exclusion. Being included in a society means that everyone has an opportunity for health, education, work, livelihood, apartment and social relationships. Participation is one route to experience inclusion. At TUAS, we work with organisations and the third sector to increase the inclusion and well-being of individuals and groups with different measures. We aim to increase the well-being of children, youths, adults and seniors.

 

Renewing Social and Health Care Services

With active research and development activities, TUAS participates in the development of the local, regional and national service network in social and health care together with cooperation partners in working life. We develop and implement new, client-oriented methods and digital services together with municipalities, governmental organisations, hospital districts, organisations and businesses. We also develop the competence of organisations and their personnel.
