Welcome to the online workspace of Industrial Productivity Boost open innovation event!
The open innovation event for experts on Industry 4.0 is organised by 6G Flagship programme in partnership with Nokia Oulu factory and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
The event takes place in Zoom on Tuesday 28 April 2020 at 14:00-16:00 EEST. Access information will be posted here on Monday 27 April.
The ultimate goal of the event is to discover novel ideas and solutions with your fellow innovators.
We have created this workspace so that you can view beforehand the e-business cards and videos (optional) of your fellow innovators in each challenge.
The online events begins with two brief experts’ insights. You can explore the presentations via the links below:
“Nokia Conscious Factory of the Future“, Heikki Romppainen, Head of Oulu Factory at Nokia
“Digitalisation of Finnish Manufacturing Industry“, Marko Jurvansuu, Principal Scientist at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland

6G Flagship is a vigorous research and co-creation ecosystem for 5G adoption and 6G innovation led by the University of Oulu and appointed by the Academy of Finland, a governmental funding agency for high-quality scientific research. As 5G enters its deployment phase, 6G Flagship supports global industry in the finalization of the 5G standard especially through joint projects, trials and demonstrations. At the same time, 6G Flagship experts are already working on essential technology components and solutions needed for the 2030 wireless era and seeking for major scientific breakthroughs in the interrelated domains of wireless connectivity, device and circuit technologies, distributed intelligent computing, and novel applications and services. With this approach, 6G Flagship envisions a future society, which is data-driven and enabled by near instant, unlimited wireless connectivity. The programme is operated in collaboration with Aalto University, Business Oulu, Oulu University of Applied Sciences and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. Currently, 6G Flagship has three company co-creators: Nokia, Keysight Technologies and InterDigital.
Nokia Oulu factory in Finland is a new product introduction (NPI) factory that produces 4G and 5G radio base stations. This Conscious Factory of the future is powered by Nokia’s own technologies. It leverages Nokia’s private wireless networks for secure and reliable connectivity for all assets within the factory. Key Conscious Factory capabilities are build on cloud-based digital data control and high level of process automation in factory manufacturing and logistics operations.
Reboot IoT Factory offers a unique opportunity to be a part of the next generation of Industry 4.0 and beyond. We bring together forerunner factories, IoT solution providers and top-class research organizations for agile co-creation and experience sharing within real-world production environments. Currently, eight forerunner factories, including Nokia-Oulu factory, offer research and development platforms for proof-of-concept experiments, which combine technology research and factory digitalization needs. Productization of these proof-of-concepts with forerunner factories as reference customers represents new business opportunities for IoT solution providers. Business impact for forerunner factories comes through the adoption of tailored IoT solutions and shared best practices, resulting in major advancements in the respective digitalization strategies. The research organisations include University of Oulu, VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, Åbo Akademi and Aalto University.
