University of Turku (UTU)
University of Turku is an internationally competitive science university. Their operations are based on high-quality, multidisciplinary education and research. They are part of the international academic community and work in collaboration with society.
A prime illustration of their commitment to enhancing the built environment through collaborative research is the Turku Urban Research Programme. This is an exemplary partnership between the City of Turku, the University of Turku, and Åbo Akademi University. At its core, the Turku Urban Research Programme aims to bolster academic research on urban issues. The findings then flow into urban governance, creating a symbiotic relationship between academic knowledge and practical urban development. This collaboration manifests in several ways: an annual funding competition for extended academic projects, bespoke research tailored to the municipality's pressing needs, and grant competitions supporting Master’s theses centered on urban topics at both participating universities. Integral to all funded projects is the consistent, hands-on collaboration between the academic researchers and on-ground practitioners.
