Excellent opportunities for the natural resource sector education in the Biovalley region
Biovalley’s strengths are based on the solid research tradition of the region and its university connections. The Kokkola University Consortium Chydenius is a functionally uniform university consortium of the Jyväskylä, Oulu and Vaasa universities. Oulu Southern Institute is a research unit in Nivala under the University of Oulu. The Centria University of Applied Sciences operates in the campuses of Kokkola, Pietarsaari and Ylivieska, and the Federation of Education in Central Ostrobothnia as well as the Federation of Education in Jokilaaksot both have six different units providing vocational training. From the Central Ostrobothnia Rural Institute units graduate professionals particularly in the natural resource sector. The Optima Federation of Education is responsible for vocational training in the Pietarsaari region.
