We see networks as collaborative platforms that bring specialists from different organisations together around a particular theme. We are involved in key networks of higher education institutions, research and development and the security sector.
Examples of our networks include the cooperation groups of the Police, Customs and the Border Guard, police groups and universities of applied sciences networks, such as ARENE (Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences), AAPA (ICT Management Directors of Universities of Applied Sciences) or the AMKIT consortium (Libraries of Universities of Applied Sciences).
In the area of RDI, we are involved in the RDI management network of universities of applied sciences. Our international networks are related to, for example, CEPOL’s research activities and Nordic police research. The Police University College also participates in the work done by editorial boards of the scientific journals in the police sector.
We are involved in regional networks, such as the security cluster in Pirkanmaa or the Tampere eLearning cluster. We also participate in various international networks, such as AEPC (Association of European Police Colleges) and ESDC (European Security and Defence College), as well as Nordic cooperation between police training institutions.
Our teachers, researchers and other specialists have networks in which they cooperate and develop their competence. We have joined some of the networks by agreement.
