City block of science and economy
We believe that the success of Helsinki is founded on the cooperation of science, research and companies. Cooperation breeds innovation and growth. Lyyra would create an internationally attractive meeting place for science and companies in the heart of Helsinki. A meeting place in the centre of the city would attract world-class experts, allow ideas to spread faster and create user-centric solutions born out of genuine need.
The Student Union of the University of Helsinki was founded to look after the school’s students. For this reason, we have already spent 150 years building a city where it is easy for people to gather together, come up with new ideas, discuss matters and have encounters. This is the kind of Helsinki we want to continue to invest in. Our activities are guided by transparency, responsibility and a long-term commitment to developing our properties and the city.
