The Tarvaala Bioeconomy Campus is developing
The campus in Tarvaala, Saarijärvi, has provided agricultural education for over 150 years. The Tarvaala Campus is home to two bioeconomy training and research and development education institutions: the natural resources department of the Vocational Institute of Northern Central Finland (POKE) and the Jyvaskyla University of Applied Sciences, Institute of Bioeconomy. In the campus work and study almost 600 people: 500 students and 100 professionals.
The Bioeconomy Campus can serve as a concrete meeting place for industry entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, developers and students. Company and education requirements form the starting point of the area development – the goals are to illustrate the structures and functions of a future bioeconomy society and to offer the opportunity to test new solutions.
