CSC participates in the Universities of Applied Sciences Days 2021

CSC will once again take part in the Universities of Applied Sciences Day organized in the first week of May. The Universities of Applied Sciences Day is one of CSC's most significant opportunities for meeting our customers and partners at universities of applied sciences on common issues.

– Universities of applied sciences are an important partner for us as the owners and customers of CSC. CSC congratulates the 25-year-old university of applied sciences activity and thanks for the continued cooperation over the quarter century, says CSC's Managing Director Kimmo Koski.

Universities of applied sciences have also been involved in sparring and building CSC's vision for 2030 – together we will build world-class research, learning and innovation environments.

– We want to be a reliable partner with whom the building of digital and other shared environments works in a seamless cooperation. The Universities of Applied Sciences Day offers a great opportunity for meeting customers and discussing about the direction in which universities of applied sciences wish that CSC's services would develop, Koski emphasizes.

CSC has participated in the Universities of Applied Sciences Day as a partner yearly. This year the event will be organized on a virtual event platform for the first time. CSC also has its own "stand” in the event, which provides topical themes and services for universities of applied sciences.

CSC's role as a supporter of higher education and RDI activities is also reflected in the Universities of Applied Sciences Day. The digitalization of higher education and RDI activities affects many services, networks and development projects in which we are involved in. Multiple CSC employees are involved in the event, and you can meet them on the event platform.

A team of experts is available in CSC 's room where you can ask questions from or just talk with the team. Customer encounters are possible through a chat and video conferencing. Customer Solution Manager Heidi Laine and Development Manager Topi Litmanen will also make brief presentations, or so-called “lightning talks”, on data management services and video services.

This spring there has been a lot of discussion around, for example, sensitive data, which is why information on, among other things, services suitable for sensitive data has been collected in CSC's room. Other themes include data management services in RDI activities, education services, video services and the Idea Bank, all of which are demonstrated with videos and PDF presentations.

– Higher education and RDI activities are important topics on which we hope to be able to develop Finnish expertise together with the universities of applied sciences community for the next 25 years, Koski emphasizes.

CSC is looking forward to being a part of the implementation of a new kind of Universities of Applied Sciences Day. Welcome to meet us at the Universities of Applied Sciences Days on 5 May 2021!
