Enna open innovation platform project


Published on

ENNA – Open Innovation Platform Development Project

The project seeks answers to what methods and interfaces universities and research groups need in order to channel top level research know-how to companies, how to channel companies’ needs to top level research and what can be done in order to make this collaboration as part of the curriculum?

Project aims to develop universities’ and research groups’ abilities to:

1.) Enhance the interface between top level research know-how and companies
2.) Connect the company-academy collaboration as part of the universities’ education system

Value of the ENNA project is leveraged from the collaboration between different scientific fields. One highly potential common application among the project partners is solar power.

Project partners are: Department of Energy and Process Engineering (Tampere University of Technology), Department of Materials Science (Tampere University of Technology), Optoelectronics Research Centre (Tampere University of Technology), Nanoscience Center (University of Jyväskylä) and Technology and Maritime Management (Satakunta University of Applied Sciences). Project coordinator is Hermia Ltd (project manager Petteri Mäkeläinen).

Project is financed by Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (Ostrobothnia) and European Social Fund. Closing date for the project is 31.12.2012.
