The standing point of the RDI at the Saimaa University of Applied Sciences is to create new lucrative solutions both to everyday life and business.

We believe that only genuine needs can generate real innovations. We want to be pioneers and remember the key role of the human being (a customer and a user) in the development.

Focus areas of our RDI are:

  • Internationalization and user-orientation in service businesses
  • Novel business concepts based on technological innovations
  • Customer-orientation and effectiveness in health services

If You need a partner in a research or development project, please contact us. Let’s plan the project and financing together.
