Tampere3 - University of Tampere, Tampere University of Technology, and Tampere University of Applied Sciences have joined forces in order to develop a new kind of mode of operation in the Finnish higher education
January 1st 2019 the three universities will merge into one interdisciplinary mega university. For now the project is known as Tampere3 but soon enough we should have a name for the new university. We are going to need special help from ambassadors to get this new university known worldwide.
