We are proud to introduce our main partner for the week, Meyer Turku.

Meyer Turku is specialized in demanding, innovative and environmental-friendly cruise ships, car-passenger ferries and special vessels. In Turku, ships have been built successfully all the way since 1737. Meyer Turku has three subsidiaries: Piikkio Works Oy, cabin factory in Piikkiö; Shipbuilding Completion Oy, turnkey supplier of solutions to public spaces in ships; and ENG´nD Oy, shipbuilding and offshore engineering company in Rauma. Together with its German sister shipyards, Meyer Werft in Papenburg and Neptun Werft in Rostock, Meyer Turku is one of the leading cruise ship builders. Co-operation between the three shipyards is developed all the time by sharing the best practices and having collaborative projects.

Our future prospects are excellent: the order book for cruise ships on our shipyard goes all the way to 2024. We are currently building cruise ships for Costa Crociere and Carnival Cruise Lines. The order book also includes cruise ships for Royal Caribbean International and TUI Cruises. At the moment we have already 2,000 employees. However, we still have a constant need for hundreds of new professionals from various fields, for example from planning and design to finance and controlling. Our next recruitment campaign starts in April. Read more about our versatile openings:

On Friday our partner The Laboratory of Business Disruption Research is going to hold an exciting day program.

The Laboratory of Business Disruption Research at Turku School of Economics researches different disruption phenomena in order to enable new business concepts and development of groundbreaking innovations. Supply chains and logistics are also bound to face major disruptions as digitalization and new technologies emerge. Our NESU program will take the participants on a roundtrip to discover what disruption is all about. This trip includes stops at local disruptors, opportunities to explore disruptions in the making, as well as testing your disruption mindset.
