International Tampere Hub

Matching Global Talent and Local Business

International Tampere Hub is a collaborative project to leverage the potential of international experts.

The City of Tampere and the Tampere University Community combine forces in the International Tampere Hub joint project to create a coordinated Tampere region service model, which brings companies and international experts together more efficiently. International Tampere Hub brings together services aimed at companies and international experts on a one-stop-shop basis, develops international partnership networks and cooperation between the higher education institutes and the business networks.

The measures of the International Tampere Hub are directed at international experts already living in the Tampere region and in improving their employment and entrepreneurship paths. Another package of measures is aimed at attracting international students and employees and supporting companies in international recruitment.
