ELME is a community dedicated to new manufacturing technology research, education, industry and commerce. Our goal is to be the most significant international future manufacturing professional in Finland.
We trust in our community members’ skills and development, and we do what we promise.
Our activities are open, and we actively share, report and publish the results of our work, however respecting business secrets.
ELME IS A PARTNER FOR ENTREPRENEURS
ELME’s partnership network is built on long-standing cooperations. The partnership network enables impressive results that could not be achieved by a single operator working alone. This network consists of all the ELME operators and clients. Not only do we trust in the capabilities of our partners, their skills and development, but we also respect their commitment and fearless attitude towards challenges and cooperation.
WE DARE TO TRY
At ELME we are fortunate to have the freedom to experiment and think differently. We are always looking for new domestic and international partnerships and customers, so that we can create the future of manufacturing technology.
HELP BUSINESSES DEVELOP IN A GROWTH GENERATING ENVIRONMENT AND COMPETITIVE INFRASTRUCTURE
When all the doors are opened wide, skills and ideas can be shared. This allows our partnership to strengthen the bonds of cooperation and foster new ideas. This leads to an improved competitiveness for the businesses involved. When the cooperating partners are willing experiment, they become innovators and their business can grow as they make use of the new ideas and technologies that are freely available to them.
The yearly growth rate goal for the ELME partner companies has been set at 10%. This growth is enabled by anticipating future equipment and machinery requirements and constantly renewing and improving the technological environment.
THE METAL INDUSTRY NEEDS PROFESSIONALS
One of the most important goals for ELME is to ensure that there are enough metal professionals in the area and with sufficient educational opportunities. Training and learning environments are modernised and improved to match the needs of the fast-changing business environment. The entrepreneurial spirit is important for the teachers as well as the students. Without a shared vision, there are no common goals. Raising the entrepreneurial spirit and skill levels of the ELME partners is a necessary and powerful factor for mutual success.
ELME IS INTERNATIONAL
Most of ELME’s members are internationally focussed. They have spent many years developing their competences in both the Finnish and international arenas. ELME’s expert exchange continues to grow and improve all the time, with many international researchers and students coming to Finland and Finnish researchers and students traveling abroad.
