UNICOM – Uniting Companies and International University Talents

What is it?

UNICOM is a collaboration between the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi, Turku Science Park Ltd. and various other regional partners in Southwest Finland. As the name implies, the two-year project aims at responding to shortage of skilled workers that many companies in Southwest Finland are currently experiencing. Additional aims include increasing the openness, receptiveness and attractiveness of the job market for those international university talents who are already residing in the region.

Whom is it for?

The core demographic of the UNICOM project are international doctoral candidates and post-docs currently studying or working in the region’s institutes of higher education. On the company side of things, the demographic consists of small-to-medium-sized companies in various fields.
