About us

Cross-Pollinate RDI & Business

We bring together ecosystems, clusters, and organizations and service providers from both the private and public sectors in the Pohjois-Savo region, resulting in a SuperEcosystem with national and international visibility and appeal. We boost the revenue and market share growth by deploying our original operational models that support clusters and ecosystems and their members in their innovation, development, and business aspirations.

Our current active Clusters and Ecosystems:

- Agri-Food Cluster (ECCP certified) - Energy Cluster North-Savo (ECCP certified) - Kuopio Health (ECCP certified) - Kuopio Water Cluster (ECCP certified) - Machine and Materia Technology Ecosystem (kestech.fi, materiakeskus.fi) - Bio and Circular Economy Cluster - Business Center North-Savo - DigiCenter North-Savo

The communication and marketing activities includes e.g. SuperWeek 2021 where over 100 different presenters, including clusters, members, and key organizations joined together to tell about their activities, offerings, and innovations. The session was streamed live globally (on Vimeo) throughout the whole week (08-12.11.2021). Search word: SuperEcosystem. Please find a link to the schedule from this link:  https://superekosysteemi.fi/hot-now/superweek-2021/schedule/ Please also see the marketing campaign we launched on LinkedIn, prior to the event.

We facilitate cross-pollination between the different verticals (Clusters and Ecosystems) related to different horizontal challenges like Digitalization, Smart City, Industry 4.0, collaborative robotics and robots, utilizing technologies like 3D scanning, industrial 3D printing, Augmented reality, test and Living Labs to further collaboration, Business Development, Knowledge sharing and Innovation.

Each Cluster and Ecosystem has their own dedicated personnel that is unique and specialized in that field of responsibility. The SuperEcosystem has 2,5 FTE that are fully dedicated to drive growth and collaboration both nationally and internationally.
