Finnish entrepreneurial experts supporting commercialization of innovations in Ukraine

EduExcellence Ltd, a global education service provider of three major universities of applied sciences in Finland, and National Center “Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine” have signed a strategic commercial contract for developing and empowering local entrepreneurship.

Junior Academy is a science programme for young talented Ukrainians under the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.  On a yearly basis, the programme supports around 250 000 gifted students who work in high-tech laboratories around the country. Auspicated by UNESCO, Junior Academy collaborates with highly recognized international organizations such as CERN and NASA. Over the years the students have received more than 160 patents and intellectual property rights certificates for innovations. However, most of them have not been commercialized.

Education in Finland highly supports innovations and entrepreneurial competencies. EduExcellence (representing Haaga-Helia, Laurea and Metropolia Universities of Applied Sciences) offered an innovative solution that was co-designed with the client and combined strengths of Haaga-Helia´s StartUp School incubator and Metropolia´s Turbiini accelerator. According to Junior Academy´s Director Oksen Lisovyi, “Finland is the best country in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship in Europe. It was very fruitful to witness the expertise and professional work of EduExcellence experts and we look forward to co-operating closer in the future”.

The initial steps of the development program have provided Junior Academy´s business incubator with a model conceptualization and supportive tools to help talented students to commercialize their innovations. Tuija Pulkkinen, CEO of EduExcellence Ltd., notes out that EduExcellence solution supports economy growth and regional development in Ukraine. “Entrepreneurship education in Ukraine needs more attention. This collaboration helps us change our young people and help them to open themselves and realize their full potential, reach their goals and expectations”, says Director Lisovyi.

Finnish education customised for Chinese students in Beijing

EduExcellence, the international education service provider owned by the Universities of Applied Sciences in the Helsinki Metropolitan area, and the Chinese agent Sino-Finland Bridge (SFB) have made an agreement on an extensive educational programme for Chinese students. The cooperation will be launched with an English degree programme on Information Technology Business by the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences.

A group of Chinese students has been selected for the programme, and they will complete a Bachelor’s degree after a short introductory period. Most Chinese students have a good command of the English language and they are highly motivated. Cooperation with the Finnish e-learning solutions company Viope will take place throughout the introductory period and the studies in programming.

“We know that there is a great demand for high-quality international education in China. Finland and the Finnish education system have an excellent reputation in China, and we should therefore respond to the need for training as soon as possible. China invests in expertise irrespective of economic fluctuation”, comments Director Jan-Markus Holm from EduExcellence, who is the head of Business Development & Sales for China.

SFB is an important partner to EduExcellence in the greater Beijing region. There are great hopes for expanding the cooperation as soon as possible.

“We seek to engage in close cooperation in China with the programmes of all our stakeholder universities, says Tuija Pulkkinen, CEO of EduExcellence. “We hope that, in the near future, the operations will extend into other areas of education and that we will be able to increase the number of student groups in order to meet China’s large market potential.

EduExcellence Ltd, proveedor global de servicios educativos; integrado por tres prestigiosas universidades de ciencias aplicadas de Finlandia y el Instituto Nacional de Empleo y Formación Profesional de Uruguay (INEFOP) han firmado un acuerdo estratégico para el desarrollo de una oferta educativa y para la formación pedagógica de técnicos en la industria de procesos.

El programa de desarrollo educativo consiste en capacitaciones docentes para niveles medio superior y educación terciaria. Además, constituye una carrera formativa en la industria de proceso adaptada para las necesidades actuales y futuras de Uruguay. Como objetivo clave está el desarrollo de la educación técnica en todo el país con un énfasis especial en zonas rurales. El alcance a gran escala de este programa de desarrollo se obtiene a través de un esquema de aprendizaje semipresencial apoyado por una plataforma digital.

Eduardo Pereyra, Director Ejecutivo de INEFOP, mencionó que: “A través de este programa de educación se pretende motivar a jóvenes para adquirir habilidades necesarias en la transformación económica. El equipo de expertos de EduExcellence comprendió profundamente nuestro desafío y utilizando métodos innovadores de co-creación, fue capaz de ofrecer una solución atractiva y factible a nuestras necesidades “.

La Administración Nacional de Educación Pública de Uruguay (ANEP) tiene un papel importante en este programa de desarrollo ya que proporciona las instituciones piloto, así como, también, a los profesionistas que reciben la capacitación. Wilson Netto, Presidente de la ANEP mencionó que “No se trata solo del desarrollo educativo en contenido, sino que el hecho de que se cuenta con una herramienta digital para la enseñanza combinada, abre oportunidades para un futuro desarrollo dentro de las instituciones públicas en Uruguay. Elegimos EduExcellence debido al enfoque pedagógico y a la fuerte experiencia educativa de sus tres instituciones educativas vinculadas a las ciencias aplicadas.”

Tuija Pulkkinen, Directora Ejecutiva de EduExcellence Ltd.; Señaló que el programa de desarrollo es único. La empresa, fundada en 2017, ha logrado asegurar una posición fuerte en China y Sudáfrica, además de América Latina. Asimismo, dijo que EduExcellence lleva al mercado global todas las áreas de especialización de las universidades de ciencias aplicadas de Haaga-Helia, Laurea y Metropolia. También expresó que la complejidad de la solución es una muestra de la experiencia y capacidades de EduExcellence y sus accionistas.
