The objective is to provide Finnish Education with a strong foothold in India, beginning with pilot programs, effectively creating access to long-term market share in the education market in South & Southeast Asia. To accomplish this, the Finnish Education brand will be established in the minds of key Indian stakeholders and partnerships forged with elite Indian education institutions in the most innovative format.
The Education Ecosystem comprises three tracks:
Track 1 – Connecting Finnish Higher Education Institutions with Indian Higher Education Institutions
- Dual Degree offerings – with work experience or internships – both way traffic
- Semester Abroad with internship
- Summer Abroad programmes – education & cultural tours
Track 2 – Thematic programmes on Social Innovation
This serves as a platform to create the branding of Finnish Education as uniquely innovative in delivering value and also developing a sustainable ecosystem in India to support the programme through corporate support. The aim is to bring the best minds of Europe and Asia together to solve some of humanity’s greatest challenges through tech-enabled innovation & design.
Track 3 – Incubator to Incubator Relationship
Universities with a research focus are an ideal breeding ground for incubating new ideas and technologies. Selling, licensing, or establishing a company based on university research projects are key ways of commercializing and often delivering broad societal and economic impacts.
The incubator to incubator track focuses on building relationships between startup incubators in Finland and in India. This track promotes the creation of strategic cooperation between industrial enterprises and international universities, with activities around the year including residency programmes in Finland and abroad for selected startups.
