Campuses - The Viikki campus

The new building for veterinary medicine and food technology was inaugurated in Viikki

The teaching of Veterinary Medicine got a permanent home in the Viikki Campus, when the new building for veterinary medicine and food technology (EE-building) was inaugurated in the early autumn. The Viikki Science Park is an excellent location for the building because the Campus also houses seats of learning of other related fields of science.

Units of two Faculties operate in the new EE-building: the offices of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, the Department of Basic Veterinary Sciences and the Department of Food and Environmental Hygiene as well as the Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry Departments of Food Technology, and Applied Chemistry and Microbiology.

With the new building for veterinary medicine and food technology, Viikki is becoming an internationally significant centre of expertise for the food industry. This development will be further emphasised when premises for the Finnish Food Safety Authority, Evira, are built alongside the EE-building.
