In its maiden year, Rapid Tampere was joined by Tampere-based industrial companies Kalmar, Sandvik, Valmet and Caruna. The aim of these host companies was to collaborate with innovative companies to create solutions for strategic challenges. The participating companies were able to start their journey towards new growth with an external collaborator.
Kalmar wanted to find solutions to increase safety within the port environment, where humans interact with machine automation on a daily basis. They are starting a collaboration with Turkish-American Stroma.
Sandvik is starting a collaboration with Tussitaikurit to work on a safety practice renewing for their test-mine in Tampere.
Valmet found three robotics solutions to test within their factories to improve worker health and safety.
Caruna wanted to better understand their customers through existing and new data stress, in order to satisfy their customers’ wants and needs more effectively. They started collaborating with DAIN Studios to elevate their data strategy and create a better customer understanding.
The year-long partnership offers the joining company the tools for implementing international co-development, processes, a knowledge sharing ecosystem, best practices and collaboration proposals needed to effectively start collaboration projects, as well as support and know-how to integrate the best technologies into the company’s own product or service.
The next opportunity for companies to join as Rapid Tampere Partners is in August 2020.
