“The higher education institutions in Tampere have had a central role as drivers for growth and development in this region. The prospective Tampere3 university will serve as a similar dynamo for success in the years to come, and this is why the city must also contribute to the creation of the new university as a major strategic partner”

Anna-Kaisa Ikonen, Mayor of Tampere

Talent Valley BioHub

TAMK Bioproduct and Process Engineering program is launching a new kind of learning environment in January 2017 – the Talent Valley BioHub. This video provides a short introduction to this way of learning that has already been successfully in use in TAMK’s Business programs for years. Now engineer students could also benefit from it and acquire new competencies in entrepreneurship.

Ten virtual companies, within each of them six first year students (three that started in September in TAMK and three freshly arrived at the beginning of January) will be forming the Talent Valley BioHub during the spring semester. The students will have real life mentors as examples and sparring partners.

The student teams will be running their companies and lead innovative operations as in real life. Each team will make their own business plan, develop their products, work with raw materials, develop their production processes, deal with real clients, markets, competitors, suppliers, etc. utilizing their sponsor company’s real business.

This new learning experience for Engineering programs – favoring a collaborative work with Pirkanmaa region´s companies – embraces the values that Experimental Finland project carries on.  Experimental Tampere Event is proud to support new innovative learning environment and wishes all the best to the freshly arrived Bioproduct and Process Engineering students and their coaches and we will be happy to hear more about their plans for the spring on January the 13th and hopefully also in the national event ending this experimental tour of initiatives in all Universities of Applied Sciences in Finland in May 2017.
