I am pleased that our close collaboration continues, especially in the fields of ICT and digitalisation, both having a significant role in building the future of Finland. I would like to express our warm thanks to Nokia, our long-time collaboration partner, says President Tuula Teeri.

In cooperation with the University of Helsinki and Aalto University, Nokia is also founding The Nokia Center for Advanced Research (NCAR) research unit and donating 150 000 euros for its operation.
