On October 4th, Åbo Akademi University and the Meyer Turku shipyard took their longstanding collaboration to the next level with a signed partnership agreement, aiming to advance the green transition in the maritime industry. Spanning five years, the agreement initially centers around Åbo Akademi's Faculty of Natural Sciences and Technology and Meyer Turku’s Business Finland-backed program, NEcOLEAP.

A key feature of this partnership is the "Green transition lab", an interactive space on the Åbo Akademi campus, fostering collaboration between academia and the maritime industry. The pact also includes a sponsored professorship focusing on sustainability, doctoral student positions, and industry-tailored courses.

Professor Kim Wikström of Åbo Akademi lauded the agreement, emphasizing its importance in driving sustainability in process technology, energy technology, and industrial engineering. Meyer Turku's CEO, Tim Meyer, echoed these sentiments, highlighting the agreement's potential in merging academic prowess with industry know-how for a greener maritime future. Rector Mikael Lindfelt of Åbo Akademi stressed the invaluable nature of such academic-industry partnerships in achieving sustainable goals.
