The challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, affecting everyone’s daily life, especially holidays and free time, have created the conditions for a consolidation of local and regional tourism. This is especially true for recreational boating in the central Baltic Sea region, where numerous small ports are already welcoming visitors to their facilities. Within this frame, the improvements done in the small ports of the Central Baltic project CBSmallPorts play an even more important role.

Teaching of mathematics in upper secondary schools is still quite conservative. Yes, digital tools and gamification are used in teaching, but the use of technology could be much more diverse. The international Erasmus+ funded GAMMA project (GAMe-based learning in MAthematics) aims at innovation and design of math games based on the game-based learning (GBL) method in collaboration with mathematics teachers and students at the Pori Lyseon Lukio upper secondary school.
– For software companies ROS (Robot Operating System) is a way to use robotics and automation operating in languages already familiar to them. For companies in robotics and automation this is also a good opportunity to find skilled workers, save in costs and innovate new products, says Toni Aaltonen, a researching lecturer at Satakunta UAS, also the project manager of Rokokoo.
– We are not talking anymore just about starting to use technology or digitalization of different processes. Technology brings a huge change in business models, says Mr. Heikki Haaparanta. He has been working at SAMK for about a year now, focusing on digital services.
