KOE Exhibition at the Design Window, Vantaa: Maarit Keskitalo, Project Assistant, Päivi Fredriksson, Head of Metropolia Design Department, Tomi Ropanen, Development Manager, H.E Ambassador Maurice Darier, Minna Leonoff, Trade and Cultural Officer and Lecturers Merita Soini and Mika Ihanus.

H.E. Ambassador Maurice Darier, the Swiss Ambassador to Finland, visited Metropolia’s Tikkurila campus last December. During the visit, he learned about the School of Creative Industries as well as various prototypes and development projects at the KOE Exhibition at the Design Window in Vantaa.

Tomi Ropanen, Development Manager of Metropolia´s Enterprise Solutions, introduced the Ambassador to the FINCH Project, which was a collaboration project between Metropolia and Berner Fachhochschule in Switzerland carried out in autumn 2010. The project offered design and mechanical engineering students an opportunity for an international and multiprofessional project experience. The results of the project included a design concept for an adjustable rollator for children with disabilities and an active orthosis developed for the Hocoma company in Switzerland.

The first implementation of the FINCH Project was very successful for all participants. Both parties - Metropolia and Berner Fachochschule - are more than willing to continue the co-operation and are already discussing future possibilities of co-operation. According to H.E Ambassador Darier also the Swiss Embassy is interested in participating in this kind of projects.
