The aim of the eComLab project is to help small Finnish online shops to internationalize and create an internationally recognized eCommerce expertise center into the metropolitan area.


The project improves the metropolitan area’s companies’ competitiveness by applying various digital solutions. Piloting enables small businesses to enter big markets, such as China, Japan, Korea, Russia and Vietnam.

Target market and users

As a short-term outcome the project creates different ways for Finnish online stores to internationalize. Networking, sharing know-how and learning from each other also have an important role in the project. As a long-term outcome, the project increases experience, knowledge and know-how of the companies and students. This gives a possibility for the universities of applied sciences to grow the number of online shop experts and improve our expertise in international online shops. The project produces an eComLab expertise center into the metropolitan area.
