Home > Press > Nokia and University of Technology, Helsinki, to partner on research in nanotechnology

Abstract:
Nokia and the Helsinki University of Technology, Finland, today announced an agreement to work together on a key strategic collaboration in nanotechnology research. The two organisations will work together on selecting and progressing research into this exciting area of technology. Nokia Research Center (NRC) will base a number of its researchers at the university's premises in Otaniemi, Espoo, for the duration of these projects. The collaboration is also part of The Finnish national FinNano program of TEKES (the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation). This is the second university collaboration around nanotechnologies to be established by Nokia in recent weeks: a collaboration with the University of Cambridge, UK, was announced early in March.

Nokia and University of Technology, Helsinki, to partner on research in nanotechnology

Helsinki, Finland | Posted on March 27th, 2007

The joint research activities are expected to focus on areas including:
- New computing and information storage methods
- Functional nanomaterials for mobile and ambient intelligence devices
- Carbon based nanomaterials (carbon nanotubes and graphene)

Commenting on the announcement, Professor Risto Nieminen of the Helsinki University of Technology, said: "Working with an acknowledged world-leader in research, such as Nokia, will help the university to extend its international reputation in science and technology. Nanotechnology offers huge potential for organisations in areas as diverse as energy, environment - for example, low energy manufacturing and recyclability - and new materials."

Dr Bob Iannucci, Nokia Senior Vice President and head of Nokia Research Center, said, "Open collaboration with leading research institutions in our fields of interest is central to NRC's strategy because it enables us to maintain the widest possible base for our research. By combining our approach with that of the university research team, we are able to benefit from the different approaches and areas of interest of both organisations. There is obviously a strong affinity between a leading Finnish research institution, such as Helsinki University of Technology, and a major Finnish company like Nokia and we are proud to be helping to promote science and technology research in Finland, with the assistance of TEKES."

The collaboration with Helsinki University of Technology was announced at the 2007 Nanotechnology Northern Europe (NTNE) conference by Dr. Tapani Ryhnen, who heads global research into nanotechnology for Nokia Research Center. Speaking at the conference, Tapani Ryhnen said that developments in nano materials and related fields have a wide range of potential applicability for the future in areas as diverse as lower energy manufacture and low cost materials.
