'Aalto University is honoured to be nominated as a Nokia Bell Labs Distinguished Partner. The volume of cooperation between Nokia and Aalto has been significant over the years especially in communications engineering, but the DAP program will further strengthen our cooperation in the research areas like augmented intelligence and quantum technologies. Aalto University represents world class research in these fields. A good indicator for this is the frequently referred Shanghai ranking* where all mentioned Aalto research areas achieve excellent rankings', says Jyri Hämäläinen, professor, Dean of the School of Electrical Engineering.
