Mission
Smart Machines and Manufacturing  Competence Centre (SMACC) was established in December 2015 as VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland and Tampere University of Technology joined forces in a strategic partnership. The partnership is built especially around intelligent machines competences in Tampere University of Technology and VTT's For Industry which focuses on intelligent machines and production. The practical work within the partnership takes place at the new Kampusareena building.
