Commissioned research - Tampere University of Technology

Customized solutions for companies

Besides fundamental research, Tampere University of Technology has a strong track record of addressing real-world industry challenges and developing new products. Commissioned research projects are tailor-made to serve the specific needs of a customer company. Commissioned projects are funded by the customer company, but the company may seek financial support, for example, from Tekes or the EU.  

TUT’s Company Services can help you launch a commissioned project and identify the professionals that fit the needs of your company. 


Characteristics of commissioned research:

  • The customer company defines the goals of the project.
  • The results and intellectual property arising from the project are transferred to the customer company. No academic goals are set for the project.   
  • The project may be conducted in the facilities of the customer company or TUT.
  • The parties agree on possible publications resulting from the project on a case-by-case basis.
