Projects

Kajaani University of Applied Sciences RDI services support the operational requirements and increase expertise and wellbeing in companies and organisations in the area and their determination to continue and undertake new ventures. RDI services are delivered through projects implemented in cooperation with companies, municipalities, research institutes and other organisations. Some of the projects are closely integrated into Kajaani University of Applied Sciences Oy’s teaching curriculum, ensuring that the students also have the opportunity to carry out learning assignments and their theses within development projects. 

The projects are implemented with external funding of which EU financing forms a significant proportion. In addition, projects are carried out using national funding (ministries, Tekes, trust funds). Kajaani University of Applied Sciences is also actively involved in expertise hub programmes and in developing business operational environments.

Kajaani University of Applied Sciences is a reliable and specialist project partner with expertise and experience in joint project applications, management, reporting and financial control. Therefore, in joint cooperation projects we are pleased to take on the role of main partner in implementation and to ensure they are carried out to the benefit of all parties.

Venäjän Karjalassa REMAC aloittaa mahdollisimman tehokkaan ja ympäristöystävällisen lietteen avoimen kompostoinnin. Syntynyttä maaperää käytetään maanparannusaineena ja maisemointiin. Aiemmin Kostamuksessa ei ole ollut maaperän tuotantoa ollenkaan, ja kaikki viherrakentamisen materiaali on kuljetettu muualle. Tarvittavat hankinnat on jo tehty yhteistyössä suomalaisten hankekumppaneiden kanssa. Kompostoinnin pilotointi on tarkoitus aloittaa kesällä 2022. Osana hanketta toteutetaan myös sarja uusia teknologiademonstraatioita jäteveden- ja lietteenkäsittelyn parantamiseksi.
