Research at WANDER

At SAMK, we have gathered our research, development, and innovation activities into research centres. Water, materials, and indoor hygiene forms one of these research entities. Research on water, materials and indoor hygiene is concentrated at SAMK’s Research Center WANDER.

The themes we are working on:

  • Different water systems such as domestic water, process water, drinking water, industrial and natural waters
  • Materials in contact with water
  • Products and solutions to improve indoor hygiene

We work with companies on EU-funded projects, nationally funded projects, and direct assignments. The Living Lab research environments in Rauma and Pori and the pilot water supply system in Rauma play a key role in research.
