Shared units



The higher education institutions constituting the Lapland University Consortium produce their support services mainly together. The institutions share e.g. the Library and the Language Centre. As of August 1, 2011, the institutions will have a joint support service centre.

They have also established two institutes that aim to spearhead expertise in their fields in Lapland: the Lapland Institute for Tourism Research and Education in Rovaniemi and the Institute for Northern Culture in Tornio uniquely combine and implement three educational levels and co-operation in research.

Through this co-operation, these higher education institutions are able to develop the quality and the efficiency of their services.
