Societal impact

Our most powerful impact factor is the education and training we offer, which in key respects ensures the high level of competence and ethics of the Finnish police.  Our up-to-date education is based on research, development and innovation (RDI) activities that serve the needs of internal security and the police. 

We are a small higher education unit by Finnish standards, and we lean powerfully on network-type collaboration.

Objectives and indicators of societal impact

The strategy and the pedagogical and RDI policies that complement it point the way to our societal impact. That is why we also look at impact targets and indicators from the perspective of our strategic priorities.

In defining the objectives and indicators, we have utilised the Impactful Higher Education Institution outline of the Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences Arene, according to which impact is enabled by the following factors:

  • competence
  • learning and ability to renew oneself
  • societal interaction. 

These are supported by communication and joint planning.

Socially impactful activities require continuous analysis of the operating environment and determined management, which supports an inclusive culture and cooperation across organisational boundaries.
