Metropolia´s projects in research, development and innovation gain a great amount of visibility in the media. For example the UPM and Metropolia collaboration Biofore Concept Car received a lot ot attention and prizes.

Last year Metropolia attended actively the discussion of higher education policy in Finland.

Metropolia employed 1 076 employers of which teachers cover 64 percent. The amount of the employers diminished last year with 84 persons.

The financial result exceeded the targets.

For the future development it is essential that Metropolia focuses the activities to four campuses Arabianranta, Leppävaara, Myllypuro and Myyrmäki.
