Human Tech – humanized technology is leading-edge technology as a part of people’s everyday lives. It can help make the daily routine of senior citizens less taxing, or improve communication between home and school. New technological solutions also increase people’s safety both at work and during leisure time, support learning to read and help us to analyse top-flight athletes’ success factors.
In Jyväskylä region the development of services and technological solutions is aimed at boosting people’s day-to-day quality of life. Based on a strong humanistic tradition, our core expertise is a deep understanding of the human dimension and applying that knowledge to a variety of branches.
Humanizing also refers to a safe living environment in which first-class services, produced in a new manner, nature and state-of-the-art technology find combination. In Jyväskylä, it is possible to work in high-tech, but also to live just walking distance from one’s place of employment, in the lap of nature. Jyväskylä has been called ‘the ten minute city’ – and with good reason, since in Jyväskylä jobs, services and residential areas are located in close proximity to one another.
Jyväskylä is a home to a large group of actors who are engaged in building, jointly and separately, a more human-centred world. Numerous enterprises in different branches engaged in humanizing technologies, products and services are to be found in the region.
Our institutions of higher education feature top-notch research – along with teaching - in many different fields. Here a human-centred orientation occupies centre stage. Improving the interface between enterprises and public agencies locally is a subject receiving constant attention.
Cooperation breeds a positive feeling of collective achievement that is highly conducive to new innovations. We have the courage to look at things from different angles, allowing new opportunities for doing business to be identified in places that were previously overlooked.
