Reforming education and education systems
We are the drivers of sustainable and creative new skills. We promote research-based skills development, learning and innovation, both in education institutions and in the workplaces. We use modern and effective technologies in our research and development.
We focus on applied research and action that is ambitious, but also concrete and useful. We promote sustainable work, future education and well-being, and organizational resilience for change, globally and nationally. We provide solutions to the challenges of lifelong learning and career guidance through research and development. We develop vocational teacher education and training from a pedagogical perspective to meet the skills needed in future working life. We are also interested in the intersection of education and working life, and in developing working life alongside strategic work.
Our LearnWell research focuses on the link between learning, teaching and well-being in working life and education institutions. We study the development of competences in different sectors and in multisectoral innovation ecosystems.
We develop and apply digital learning solutions through research. Together with our partners, we produce useful solutions for working life and society that develop skills and expertise. Our expertise is reflected in each of the HAMK’s research key ecosystems: SmartBio, SmartBuilt and SmartEdu.
