A Finnish Week, part 2

Today we will leave for Tampere by plane: 39 people in all, 21 entrepreneurs, education people of two junior colleges and officials/regional stakeholders. The objective of the visit is the exchange of knowledge and matching with Finnish companies. The trip is made possible with a grant of the European Commission.

We will have a packed program. Just look at the flyer with activities. The real program is more extensive.

Most of the time will be spent in the Finlayson area, the place of the old Cotton Mill. This area has been restored and remodelled into a media centre. The Polytechnic School of Art and Media is located there as well as a cluster of ICT- and media companies, restaurants, musea as well as conference rooms and halls.

You can have a look of Tampere by looking at the web cams in the various parts of the city. Of course it is only a few hours a day that you can really see the locations in Tampere as there is only 6 to 7 hours of daylight, between nine and four o’clock.
