Tampere3 project to be reorganized

The higher education institutions have come to an agreement on the reorganization of the Tampere3 project. The new university group is to begin operation on 1 January 2019.

The project will be led by a new executive group. The group’s Chair will be Kari Neilimo, Chair of the Board of the University of Tampere. Other executive group members will be President of TUT Mika Hannula, Vice-rector of UTA Harri Melin, and Vice President of TAMK Mikko Naukkarinen. The new executive group’s first task will be to prepare a road map for the reorganized Tampere3 project and to build a new project organization.

“The executive group will make the decision on how the project will be organized and recruit the necessary personnel. We will be making use of experts from all three higher education institutions, and, if necessary, from the outside,” says President of TUT Mika Hannula.

In addition to the executive group, the project will also have a new strategic steering group consisting of the Presidents, Rectors, and Chairs of the Board from all the Universities. The strategic steering group will meet when necessary, by estimation 2-3 times a year.
