TTY Foundation - Tampere University of Technology

TUT – a foundation university

Tampere University of Technology is one of the two Finnish universities which started operating in the form of a foundation on 1 January 2010, when the new Universities Act came into force. The charter of TTY Foundation was signed in Tampere on 9 February 2009.

The foundation model promotes the development of education and research at TUT and 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 the 137 million euro foundation capital enable further investment in new openings in research and education as well as in the development of quality and operations management.
