How we operate?

Our customers are particularly companies that want to solve the challenges of digitalisation and strengthen their competitiveness. We also serve the public sector.
  
Our customers can make their operations more efficient by developing data interoperability, using precise positioning and new generation positioning technologies. We produce tools and  test environments and provide consultation, and training, as well as provide support through networking for companies to obtain funding.
  
Our development work focuses on four different themes:

  • the built environment
  • bioeconomy
  • health and wellbeing
  • transport, logistics and traffic.

In these sectors, our customers can develop businesses related to artificial intelligence, high performance computing and cybersecurity. 

What is our goal?

In accordance with the European Data Strategy, interoperable information combined with location information is an indispensable resource for developing competitiveness and innovation capacity. Our activities are aimed at making efficient use of data spaces, for example on developing digital twins. Our goal is to create a functional, permanent location innovation ecosystem for seeking funding, testing services and developing new innovations in Europe. 
  
The Location Innovation Hub, supported by the European Commission, is one of the four digital innovation hubs in Finland (EDIH) and is part of the European network of innovation hubs.
