Oulu Innovation
Alliance

Co-creating Arctic Opportunities

Oulu Innovation Alliance is the network of networks. Our five ecosystems – Agile Commercialization, OuluHealth, ICT & Digitalization, Industry 2026, and Northern City with Attractive Opportunities – are the pinnacle of Oulu’s know-how. We offer these platforms – our ecosystems – for you.

Oulu is, according to Nokia’s Rajeev Suri, “the world’s best place, second to none, for radio access engineering.” Additionally, Oulu is one of the youngest cities in Europa, with a high degree of education, meaning the city is teeming with innovative people eager to change the world.

Whether you are looking to invest in Oulu’s talent or you have an innovation to get out to the world – Oulu Innovation Alliance is there to help you achieve your goals.

Oulu is the 12-minute city of innovation. You can get pretty much anywhere in the city in 12 minutes, making maintaining an inspiring job and recreational hobbies a breeze – nothing quite like it to hold on to one’s productivity.

You can come to Oulu with an idea and leave with a finished product in hand – we have all the know-how you’ll ever need to productize, fund, test, and commercialize your innovation. You can digitalize everything in Oulu, and you don’t need to do it alone.

Oulu Innovation Alliance’s key partners are the City of Oulu, University of Oulu, Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Oulu University Hopsital, The Oulu Region Joint Authority for Education, Natural Resources Institute Finland, Technopolis Plc., and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. Our doors are open to those who wish to come co-create Arctic opportunities in Oulu.
