A UAS that serves the region

Strategic goal: As Laurea, we are where expertise is needed – internationally in Uusimaa.


The vitality of the region is made up of the actors' shared goals, and th-refore we participate in preparing and implementing regional strategies. Regional development means consistent interaction in the region, actively collaborating for the well-being of Uusimaa and its competitive ad-vantage. Laurea's partners include companies, public organisations and third-sector actors as well as labour and employer organisations.

Our partners make extensive use of our expertise through the regional services we offer in Uusimaa. We work proactively with eyes on the future: we are bold and flexible enough to work in new situations. We have excellent regional services and close collaboration with the region.

In regional development work, we take into consideration Uusimaa's special regional issues. The metropolitan area is becoming strongly internationalised through immigration and this represents a challenge to service development. Service formation enables the development of services outside of major population centres as well.

Laurea's strategic collaboration with other education institutions and division of duties are organised jointly with other actors in the region. We work in close networks with our partner institutions. As part of the region's development, we create smooth paths from the secondary level to the tertiary level and provide extensive open UAS studies.

We create a competitive future Finland with our partners. Uusimaa is the engine of this country, and Laurea serves the region better than any other institution.
