Arc­tic Drone Labs received the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion’s Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­tre recog­ni­tion

A simple roadmap of the city of Oulu

Arc­tic Drone Labs, coor­di­nat­ed by Oulu Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences (Oamk), has received recog­ni­tion from the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion. Arc­tic Drone Labs (ADL) is the first tech­nol­o­gy cen­tre run by a Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences to pass the Com­mis­sion’s strict cri­te­ria for the Advanced Tech­nol­o­gy Cen­tres for Indus­tries. Arc­tic Drone Labs pro­vides indus­try and SMEs with access to advanced tech­nolo­gies through col­lab­o­ra­tive projects.

Arc­tic Drone Labs (ADL) has more than 40 Finnish com­pa­nies or research insti­tutes that cov­er a wide range of tech­nolo­gies used in drones, such as print­ed intel­li­gence, 5G / 6G net­works, sen­sor tech­nolo­gies and image pro­cess­ing. Arc­tic Drone Labs also has sig­nif­i­cant fleet of drones for test­ing and prod­uct devel­op­ment. Ser­vices focus on lab­o­ra­to­ry test­ing, pro­to­type devel­op­ment, and prod­uct con­cept demon­stra­tions. In addi­tion to the equip­ment, Arc­tic Drone Labs has test areas in var­i­ous parts of Fin­land. Test­ing is also sup­port­ed by a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of drone pilots.

The Euro­pean Com­mis­sion has iden­ti­fied tech­nol­o­gy cen­tres that pro­vide deci­sion-mak­ers, indus­try, and acad­e­mia with access to advanced tech­nolo­gies and exper­tise. Tech­nol­o­gy hubs enable and help indus­try man­age the tran­si­tion to a low-car­bon and knowl­edge-based econ­o­my. There are just over 300 tech­nol­o­gy cen­tres in the EU, coor­di­nat­ed by top uni­ver­si­ties and nation­al research insti­tutes, 14 of which are in Fin­land.

In 2018, the Euro­pean Com­mis­sion grant­ed Arc­tic Drone Labs the sta­tus of a dig­i­tal inno­va­tion hub.
