What is Smart City Oulu

If you have an idea that you wish to devel­op into a fin­ished prod­uct, you have come to the right place. Oulu has all the know-how and facil­i­ties to pro­duc­tise, test, finance, and com­mer­cialise your inno­va­tion.

You may be famil­iar with Oulu’s his­to­ry as the home­town of radio tech­nol­o­gy and the rapid devel­op­ment up to the world-lead­ing 6G research. OuluHealth, on the oth­er hand, rep­re­sents the top of health tech­nol­o­gy, while Oulu Auto­mo­tive Clus­ter offers the lat­est inno­va­tions in vehic­u­lar tech­nol­o­gy. You can find more world-class exper­tise on these pages.

Behind all this is the Oulu Inno­va­tion Alliance (OIA), a cohe­sive part­ner­ship net­work of edu­ca­tion, research, busi­ness, and the pub­lic sec­tor. The stake­hold­ers of the alliance have joint goals, resources, chal­lenges, and pos­si­bil­i­ties to make things hap­pen. OIA makes use of test­ing and devel­op­ment envi­ron­ments and avail­able co-cre­ation ser­vices for devel­op­ing busi­ness. You are wel­come to join in!


Stay alert. A smart city nev­er sleeps – it keeps pro­duc­ing new things. Keep track of devel­op­ments, ask ques­tions and com­ment. Par­tic­i­pate and influ­ence.
