SmartEdu – Smart Future Education and Competences

Developing competences and modernising learning solutions

A changing world challenges us to develop education and education systems and the ecosystems around them. To ensure vitality and competitiveness, new creative learning and knowledge management skills are needed. At HAMK, we respond to these needs by developing competence and renewing learning solutions together with, for example, educational organisations, governmental departments and business both in Finland and globally.

Our digital competence and quality in research, broad industry expertise and network in Finland and internationally are at the core of our operations. Our research objectives are strongly linked to the development and application of digital learning solutions. We create new opportunities for learning, for example through virtual solutions, gamification and analytics.

Our research contributes to the future of sustainable work, education and well-being. Well-being and skills improve the competitiveness of organisations. Prosperous employees develop their careers and make choices in a changing world that support their own and their organisation’s competence development.

Come and do research with us. You’re here to make a change.
