University of Oulu 60 years - For the Next Generation

During the opening ceremony of the first academic year in 1959, there was a butterfly flying around the speaker´s podium while professor Pentti Kaitera was giving his speech. The butterfly suddenly landed on professor Kaitera’s tailcoat. On that day, the success story of the University of Oulu started. The butterfly effect has lasted until today and will last for the next generations as well. We have always looked into the future and worked for a more sustainable, healthy and intelligent world.​

We continue this work based on our 60 years of experience - for the next generation. In 2019 we invite all the friends of the university to celebrate with us.
