Several 3D companies from the city of Oulu and University of Oulu’s Center for Internet Excellence (CIE) have been chosen as a part of a large EU-project to develop a European wide technological platform.

Project creates dozens of new jobs for 3D-internet operators in Oulu-area and opens up numerous possibilities for international business. Technological clusters of Oulu-area would greatly benefit from subject related technologies and solutions. According to CIE’s director Mika Ylianttila, Oulu holds large amounts of Internet know-how.

Fi-Ware project’s EU funding is one of the biggest Oulu based organizations have ever received totaling to € 3.4 million. When complete, this € 66 million project covering over 45 companies and research institutes all around Europe will offer solutions that improve future Internet user interface performance and reliability.
