TUT’s new promotional video titled “Research is the key to the future” takes you on a breath-taking visual journey into the world of science, retracing the industrial history of Tampere and reaching for the stars to offer a glimpse into the future of scientific exploration. The video illustrates TUT’s commitment to pursue research for the benefit of people and the environment.
Two new members, Antti Kaunonen and Kati Korhonen-Yrjänheikki, have joined the Board of the TTY Foundation.
Doctor of Science in Technology Antti Kaunonen sits on the Management Board of the mechanical engineering corporation Voith Paper that is based in Germany. He has years of experience of working for global technology companies in Europe, the USA and China under his belt.
Doctor of Science in Technology Kati Korhonen-Yrjänheikki is the director of education and employment at Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland TEK. She oversees the preparation of a national strategy for Finnish engineering education.

Student team from TUT goes through to the finals of TIMES
A team of students from the Department of Industrial Management at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) have made it through to the finals of the international Tournament In Management and Engineering Skills (TIMES).
Computational methods for fermentative hydrogen production
The doctoral dissertation of MSc (Tech) Jenni Seppälä explores the applicability of computational methods for fermentative hydrogen production and provides an overview of related genome-scale metabolic models.
Scientists are now better equipped to understand stem cells and the behaviour of their genes. The unique “fingerprints” of stem cells are stored in a recently launched global database in a bid to speed up stem cell research and develop, for example, new stem cell-based treatments.
“Adipose-derived stem cells have been differentiated, among others, into osteoblasts under laboratory conditions and further used to rebuild bone tissue ravaged by cancer,” says Kaisa-Leena Aho.
Asteroids are veritable treasure troves of precious metals. Asteroid exploration is a new area of research that ventures into unknown territories and fuels the imagination. Not even the sky is the limit.
Technologies developed by Professor Mikko Kaasalainen and his research group have been used to reconstruct hundreds of asteroids and gain new insights into their structure and properties.
The prospect of space mining is exciting news for the mining industry.
Power grid failures and cell phone outages that occur during emergencies may hinder rescue operations and threaten public safety. Researchers at TUT are looking for solutions to strengthen critical infrastructures against storms and natural disasters.
Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities which operate in the form of a foundation. The foundation model promotes the development of education and research. It gives the University good prerequisites to succeed amid growing international competition.
The increased autonomy provides a competitive edge when competing for good researchers, inspiring teachers and talented students. The proceeds of foundation capital enable further investment in new openings in research and education.
