A flexible innovation platform called Smart Partner Campus is being piloted as part of the Smart Technology Hub. The Smart Partner Campus is an open and inspiring collaboration environment for innovation that promotes new ways of working and thinking outside the box. The Smart Partner Campus focuses on doing research and product development together with companies, start-ups and researchers within the industry, as well as with Wärtsilä’s partners, customers and suppliers.
The purpose of the Smart Partner Campus is to bring people together and speed up ecosystem co-creation. No man is an island – together we can address challenges we wouldn’t be able to address alone. The world is facing increasingly complex challenges. We can solve these challenges through expanding our competences and working together.

The launch of the first Smart Partner Campus partners took place in March 2019. The first partners are Vaasan Sähkö, Royal Caribbean Cruises, NLC Ferry, University of Vaasa, Demos Helsinki and Danfoss.
The first partners are together working on the Smart Partner Campus model of co-creation and the first common projects are under work.
