Call for project partners
Co-creation is seen as a strategic approach for societies. Big, wicked problems such as the aging population or climate change require cross-sector, cross-border and cross-disciplinary collaboration, and active citizen engagement is increasingly emphasized.
Recent public RDI funding decisions are stressing the role of active engagement and co-creation. The funding is calling for a Mission Oriented approach. Alone, Horizon Europe, the European Commission's new research and innovation framework, has 100 billion euros to give to promising RDI projects. We are calling for companies, cities, research institutions, and NGOs to form a consortium with us in order to apply for RDI funding in Finland and globally.
Laurea has over 500 members of staff with wide expertise on various professional and academic topics. We have expertise in health and wellbeing, security, business management, service design, etc. Laurea's external RDI funding in 2017 was 3.81 million euros, which is 13.6 % of Laurea's turnover. We are constantly looking for partners for RDI projects in Finland and globally.
If you, your company, research team, think tank, city, organization or NGO are seeking to apply for RDI funding, do not hesitate to contact us!
