Entrepreneurship and digital transformation at the University of Turku, Finland

The University of Turku considers itself an Entrepreneurial University that fosters entrepreneurship in many ways, based on a three-pillared concept: People (developing entrepreneurial competences), Collaboration (with businesses), and Outputs (creating new businesses). With regards to People, at the heart of the University’s entrepreneurial education is the Turku School of Economics, which offers a wide variety of programmes, mostly open to students from all departments, as well as executive courses. In the Collaboration pillar, UTU teams up with companies in interdisciplinary research projects or collaboration platforms. In terms of Outputs, the University supports start-ups and spin-offs, mainly through its unit for Innovation, Entrepreneurship and Transnational Education. Digitisation spans all entrepreneurial activities as an underlying concept.
