Ongoing Projects



Insights and Business from Data is a project that strengthens companies’ innovation practices by developing and exploiting an innovation platform geared by data analytics and service design.


AirSens project studies the possibility to create a new business concept where the focus is on a smart air ventilation solution based on sensors and automation.


EduDigi project aims to find answers to the question how game technology could be applied in teaching and learning, and what kind of applications and solutions could be created for that by utilizing the open and joint innovation potential in urban communities.


Occupational Wellbeing At All Ages project aims at extending careers at all ages by reducing the number of sick leave days and disability pensioners through occupational wellbeing.


Health Mems project studies new health monitoring concepts enabled by MEMS based sensors.


Sun2People project aims at using the solar powered learning environment developed in the previous SunEdu projet for a larger target group in rural settings.


Healthy Building project developes means to ensure the health of a building during its whole life cycle.


VitalSens project developes a novel biomedical remote monitoring platform that is able to adapt to different usage scenarios and therefore enables long-term, continuous use in each step of the health care chain.

Completed Projects


Gesture Controller project conceptualizes and studies the possibilities to commercialize a value-adding environment management service that enables disabled people to easier manage everyday activities.


EduRobot project researches soft robotics and 3d printing technologies and developes an intelligent low cost robot hand for educational applications. The 2-year project started January 2014.

Food Traceability & Safety Technology Center project established a new food safety technology cluster with showroom operation, piloting and testing. Different food safety technology products were exhibited in the showroom, showcasing the whole food safety chain from primary production to consumer. The 2,5-year EAKR-funded project started in August 2011.

HealthSens project addressed critical areas for new biomedical sensor technology: circuit development, miniaturization and system integration, new biosensors, connectivity to networks, mobile technology, and personalized user experience. Future sensors are used in clinical medicine and physiological monitoring of personal health, diagnosed illnesses, and effectiveness of treatment.

LCDA (Life Cycle Data Acquisition) project concentrated on streamlining the life cycle management of electronic, machine, and metallic product industry. The 2-year Tekes-funded project was launched in March 2011.


MoldSensor project developed a rapid point of care feasible test kit for measuring mycotoxins in indoor air more accurately than the qualitative methods used before. The measuring method is based on antibodies and antigens.

PeopleNearMe project provided a system and method for answering “who is near me, inform me when certain people are near me”, etc. It also enables people to have more real life social encounters, contacts, and open up new interesting discussions based on common interests, business interests, as it helps to connect people and release matched social discussion points for them.


SPAGU (Smart Space for Personal Guidance) project developed a wireless indoor tracking and guidance system where the person carries only a simple tag and the guidance comes from the space around. The 21-month Tekes-funded project started in August 2011.


SunEdu project focused on developing a new solar powered off-grid learning environment, where updated digital teaching materials can be distributed over the net. The 18-month Tekes-funded project was launched in November 2012. During the project different solar panel technologies, their environmental footprint and recyclability were studied.

World's Thinnest E-reader

Broadcast (Information Distribution Platform) project developed an information distribution platform for global markets utilizing broadcast network. The 1-year Tekes-funded project was launched in March 2011.


RFID/EPC in Technical Trade project aimed to find benefits of using RFID throughout the Finnish technical trade (HVAC materials) value network. These benefits are best achieved through the use of open global standards. Defining the common implementation of these standards was one of the key objectives of the project. Technical feasibility of using RFID with the customers’ products is also tested during the project.


VisualRFID development project aimed to create a solution to help manage a large number of people independently moving from one place to another in an environment they are not familiar with.
