MATCHing is an annual get-together event for tech-students and tech-companies to network and make new contacts.

Next MATCHing -> September 19th 2024

MATCHing playfully resembles a matchmaking situation between students-companies and researchers/teachers-companies, allowing for an easier first contact. It is a “co-operation event” where we help the right people to meet each other.

The event consists of a more traditional fair, but with a twist of dating apps. All the participating companies get a dating profile with color codes for their areas of interest.

If you happen to get a match during the event you can have a sit down in the Single’s Café and have a chat with your new beau over a cup of free coffee.

Other program have included arranged group-presentations/panel discussion with companies or Speed Dating sessions, and also different workshops for student. Various research projects have also been on display at the event.

In 2023 MATCHing was arranged in co-operation with the projects Novia-Hub Sydösterbotten and Praktik 2.0.

MATCHing 2024 will be held on Thursday September 19th!
