We at Technopolis want to ensure as safe working environment as possible in our campuses. In this page you will find actions that have been taken. In case you have any questions, please contact your local contact person or info@technopolis.fi for more information.

Common areas and general actions

Cleaning of Common Areas
Technopolis, together with its cleaning partners, will ensure the cleaning is done properly in our campuses. We follow the cleaning instructions provided by the authorities and have decided to enhance the cleaning of common spaces on all our campuses for now. This means:

  • Disinfection of all the doorknobs and buttons in elevators in the common spaces (entrances, communicating doors and common toilets)
  • Disinfection of receptions desks
  • Extra cleaning of common toilets (especially toilets nearby reception)

Hygiene
We advise all our customers to be considerate of others and putting extra effort on washing hands frequently and sneezing and coughing correctly. We use various on-campus communication channels to remind our customers, partners and own staff on the importance of this. There are good facilities in all of our campuses to wash hands with soap and water. In addition, we have hand sanitizers available at the reception area in all of our buildings.

Availability of Hand Sanitizers, Masks and Gloves in Campus
Ask the availability locally (Contact information).
In Finland you can also order hand sanitizer through MyTechnopolis Webstore.
