What is MEDAIA?

MEDAIA develops innovation platforms and methods for media industry in Helsinki and Tampere regions in Finland. 13 rapid, small-scale experiments are implemented in the project. They are based on open innovation and demonstrate new collaboration models and innovation methods for  creating product and service concepts.  The project is coordinated by  Tampere UAS (Mediapolis Campus) and Metropolia UAS (Media) in partnership with the Finnish Broadcasting Company Yle.

The funding programme of MEDAIA is “6aika” The Six City Strategy – Open and Smart Services” that aims to sustainable urban development carried out by the six largest cities in Finland. Thus, urban development is the driver of the project. In many experiments, the type of value that media can create for urban services and sustainable urban development is researched and tested.  MEDAIA is a two-year project, which started 1st of November 2015.
