Research, development and innovation activities (RDI) in brief

We are Finland's only higher education institution specializing in police research. We engage in applied research and development, serving the planning and development of policing and internal security. The data produced is also used for education at the Police University College. 

Diagram of the research, development and innovation activities of the Police University College. The contents of the diagram are explained on the page.

We are active in both national and international RDI projects, having been involved, for example, in numerous EU-funded projects in the field of security. Our RDI partners include national and international stakeholders of the police, universities and research institutions, and companies and other organizations.

We publish research data

We publish research data and textbooks in Polamk’s own publication series. The themes of the publications revolve around policing in particular, but also the promotion of internal security in a wider sense.

You can read theses made by our students through the common Theseus service of universities of applied sciences. The theses are available in Finnish and Swedish.
