Based in Finland, Tampere University of Applied Sciences (otherwise known as TAMK) is a higher education institution oriented towards working life skills and practical innovations. Teaching and RDI are integrated seamlessly in the operational functions of TAMK in Built Environment and Bioeconomy, Business and Media, Industrial Engineering, Pedagogic Innovations and Culture and Social Services and Health Care.
It places special emphasis on working with the latest technologies and due to this, was looking to create a virtual lab for its students for several reasons, including connecting the university to its living labs, encouraging collaborative work and enhancing empathy - which is exactly where we were able to help. Our shared immersive spaces are already used by countless institutions globally for the very same reasons, hence why TAMK knew it could turn to us to deliver the project.
