RDI Projects

  • Project results are being created in applied research, method development and experiments as well as seminars and workshops. In addition to the Central Finland region, we cooperate in national and international networks.


We work in various teaching positions with young people and adults, focus on specialist tasks, participate actively in national and international networks and work with an entrepreneurial spirit across units. In Finnish and in English! We produce publications and implement client projects.

Almost half of our staff work in specialist positions, over 100 work in research and development and the rest work in support services that secure our operations.

Work has been made smooth: we offer the latest educational technology, a wide variety of workspaces and, when feasible, the possibility to work remotely.

My Jyvaskyla dream.

Day in life of a JAMK student during Covid 19 pandemic
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

JAMK university of applied sciences has the best mode of teaching and student interaction and participation I have experienced thus far. Due to the pandemic, I am yet to start on campus studies but still the school is making sure that online studies are as involving as possible for the students.
