The University Consortium of Seinäjoki has started a review of its research and education strategy. As a starting point for the strategy work MDI, together with the University Consortium, organised a development day, in which the entire University Consortium of Seinäjoki community was invited to discuss the university centre in the post-pandemic period. The strategy work also considers the reform of University Consortium operations and the development of new functional concepts in research, education and social interaction. The development day was held in Seinäjoki in the inspiring premises of the art and culture centre Kaleva Barn. For the development day, ideas were collected in advance from all those working in the units of the University Consortium and the Southern Ostrobothnia University Association. The advance task dealt with the directions of university centre activities in the post-pandemic period, future directions and development needs. The results were analysed during the development day.
