Metso donates €450,000 to Tampere University of Technology

With this donation, Metso wishes to support Finnish scientific research and cooperation with the business world.

Metso donates a total of one million euros to three Finnish universities. The donation is shared by Tampere University of Technology, Aalto University, and the University of Oulu. This donation is part of the celebratory programme in honour of Finland’s 100 years of independence.

Metso is one of the leading international industrial companies in its field, serving the needs of the mining, aggregate, oil and gas, pulp and paper, recycling, and energy industries. Metso has worked in close collaboration with universities around the world for decades.

 “The opportunity for continuous, varied scientific research work in cooperation between universities, companies and other parties is essential for building a sustainable future. It is also of utmost importance that universities’ training programs produce top experts with knowledge and skills that promote companies’ ability to renew and succeed. Through our donation, we want to support universities representing branches of science important to us in their ability to offer internationally competitive scientific research and education,” says Matti Kähkönen, President and CEO.

Tampere University of Technology’s President Mika Hannula thanks Metso for this donation.

 “Tampere University of Technology has carried out long-term research and product development in cooperation with Metso in several fields, including materials technology, mechanical and production engineering, and hydraulics. The donation we received from Metso is a great recognition of this fruitful partnership,” he says.
