Season’s Greetings from the PresidentThe year 2016 has been eventful and the whole year has been characterized by the hard work related to the Tampere3 project.
There have been many highlights, such as the opening of the digital workshop TutLab and the establishment of Finland’s first bachelor’s programme in engineering taught in English. We have also done well in international ranking lists and, for example, received a highly-valued ERC grant for solar cell research. The European-wide event Researchers' Night increased the awareness of science among the citizens of Tampere.
Good cooperation partners and constant interaction are vital to our university and help us succeed in our work.
The past year has brought us both challenges and moments of success and joy. Soon we all have a well-earned opportunity to rest before a new year.
I would like to thank our personnel, students and cooperation partners and wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and the best of success for 2017!
