Strategic Research Areas

Laurea's fields  of expertise in RDI activities focus on expertise in nursing work and coping at home, service business activities, security and social responsibility, as well as entrepreneurship and innovations.

The areas of strength are strategic areas of expertise with which we are aiming at top-level activities of an international standard, both in teaching and in research and development work.

The areas of strength come from entities formed by projects and networks, producing important results from the point of view of our strategy and supporting long-term goals. Features uniting all of the areas of strength include
- moving them toward service innovations and value networks
- the LbD (Learning by Developing) operational model that combines learning that promotes the development of the world of employment with RDI activities
- internationally recognised and successful RDI work.
