Environmental change, the growing global population and rising wealth place ever greater demands on the sustainable use of our planet’s resources. Urbanization is challenging infrastructure and public services, both in expanding cities and in depopulating rural areas. Human life expectancy is increasing due to advancing healthcare and better living conditions.

Digitalization continues to make the world more connected and is altering the way we communicate, learn, work and consume services. All these developments affect our way of life, our communities and our cultures. We need new, research-based knowledge and well-educated people, able to navigate in a changing world.

At the University of Oulu we promote learning and carry out research that pushes the boundaries of the known. We use our full potential to contribute to solving some of the greatest global challenges, including sustainable resource use, responsible business, human wellbeing and lifelong health, intelligent systems and services development, and harnessing environmental risks.

The research done at the University of Oulu benefits people living at all latitudes. However, our heritage as one of the Northernmost multidisciplinary universities in the world is invaluable now, when mankind’s new growth frontier is to the North. The demanding conditions of the far north have always forced people to be inventive and resourceful. Many innovations that have changed the world have their roots here. We call this: “Science with Arctic attitude”.
