Centria spoke about automation at FIN-CHI Higher Education Collaboration Event
As China sees a huge demand of importing applied sciences oriented higher education practice from Finland, China Education Association for International Exchange (Beijing) hosted a hybrid seminar on China-Finland Applied Universities Collaboration on 10.11.2022.
The seminar began with a discussion about China’s situation of separating applied sciences education from traditional academic higher education. Education experts shared experiences and achievements of active cooperation between China and Finland. The seminar also included three panel sessions on the following topics: clean energy, automation and development of technologies for elderly care service.
On behalf of Centria, R&D manager Tomi Pitkäaho presented his team’s latest development projects of automation and robotics technology, from robot labs to applications to companies’ automation operations. He outlined a summary of Centria’s ongoing international research projects, focusing on the development fields that have Chinese partners. To a question by an audience member regarding Centria’s interest in collaborating with Chinese universities Pitkäaho replied: “Yes, Centria is very interested to find and start partnerships with China universities in the robotics area.”
