In order to make a stronger impact on society, the University of Tampere will improve its quality, operational basis and productivity. The university will also utilize its multidisciplinary structure and pool resources to further research and education that has the greatest long-term potential. A stable economy and sufficient resources will enable the combination of visionary leadership and freedom of research and education.
To increase its impact and to improve its quality and efficiency, the university will renew its organizational structure.
The organizational structure will be made more transparent by eliminating administrative overlaps. The current three-tier administration will be replaced by a two-tier structure. This should allow teachers and researchers to have more time for their core activities.
The centralized administrative services of the university will be adapted to respond to the new needs of the schools. Moreover, in the organization and resourcing of the financial and staff management in these schools, the share of outsourced services will be taken into account. The processes supporting research and education will also be reformed.
