SeAMK Research & Development

Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences (SeAMK) carries out applied research and development work (R&D) which are closely related to teaching. SeAMK’s R&D activity is based on our specialised competences, spearhead and peak competences as we call them. Our competences aim to respond to the development challenges of our customers. To do this, we have organized our activities under the brand SeAMK Research and Development.

SeAMK Research & Development offers companies and organisations R&D and educational services. These services are produced in all the fields of activity of the university. We aim to produce added value for companies and organisations in order to support the development of their innovative operations. We operate regionally, nationally and internationally. SeAMK Research and Development offers ready service packages which also act as a basis for tailoring to individual customer needs.

SeAMK Research & Development consists of both faculty personnel and administrative personnel of the Contact Centre.
