A cluster of benefits

Photonics Joensuu

Photonics Center is a subsidiary of Business Joensuu, whose main owner is the City of Joensuu. University of Eastern Finland, Karelia and Riveria act as partner organisations for Photonics Center, bringing their own services, infrastructure and expertise into the Photonics Joensuu innovation ecosystem and are involved in developing Photonics Center’s business.

These organisations are no strangers to each other. Before the founding of Photonics Center, they jointly created a photonics education path, where experts in the field of photonics are trained from the secondary education level all the way to doctoral degree level. The natural continuum from this earlier work was to create a world-class place for companies to grow and develop! The partner organisations have each brought their own strengths to secure growth in the business community. The aim of Photonics Center is to serve companies on a one-stop-shop basis – seamlessly and effortlessly from one place. At Photonics Center the research collaboration facilitates new innovations, product development and flexible prototyping.

The service offering consists of Photonics Center’s own services as well as the special expertise of each partner organisation. The equipment owned by Photonics Center can be used by all companies, without anyone having to tie up capital for equipment purchases. The facilities are located on the university campus and have been remodelled for business needs. The synergy with the university further increases the vitality of companies and the research world.
