Clean and Sustainable Solutions

Clean water, air and nature are fundamental rights that must be guaranteed for future generations. Metropolia's goal is to educate people who are able to meet the challenges posed by climate change, the pressure on ecosystems and the depletion of natural resources, and to act actively and innovatively so that negative environmental impacts are kept to a minimum.

The innovation hub brings together Metropolia's sustainable development expertise

Due to the complexity and multidisciplinary of these challenges, we also need broad and multidisciplinary expertise. Metropolia's innovation hubs are ecosystems where such knowledge and expertise are created.

The Clean and Sustainable Solutions brings together Metropolia's sustainable development expertise so that, together with our partners, we can guarantee Finland an important role in solving the sustainability crisis.

The innovation hub brings together actors from different fields and sectors - companies, research institutes, cities, organizations, residents of the region as well as Metropolia students, lecturers and other experts - to learn and research together and try and innovate different clean and sustainable solutions to the sustainability crisis.

Our core activities are:

  • Sustainable food system
  • Circular Economy
  • Industry 4.0 applications in sustainable development

Activities will be implemented through various open research, development, innovation and learning platforms, such as the Urbanfarmlab ecosystem.
