The Cleantech Garden to be developed in phases brings together the noteworthiest companies, research institutes and educational establishments in clean tech. The leading themes of Cleantech Garden are mobile solutions, circular bioeconomy, sustainable food system and carbon-neutral energy economy.
The Cleantech Garden campus with a total floor area of 50,000 sq. m. can be easily reached by public transport and car, for example, via Länsiväylä.
