Our ecosystem’s co-creation activities vary from large scale R&D&I programs to agile pilots executed inside our programs, from competence development to standardisation & regulation activities as well industry promotion and knowledge sharing.
In order to achieve the ambitious targets of our roadmap, our ecosystem aims to establish 1-2 new RD&I programs per year and establishing new services to support growth of industrial companies.
Examples of activities established via our Intelligent Industry ecosystem:

InDEx – Industrial Data Excellence -program

The vision of the InDEx-program is to unlock the value of data as an enabler for the next industrial revolution centered around artificial intelligence in the Finnish manufacturing industry.
Currently only a fraction of the value of data has been captured in manufacturing sector and for this reason InDEx (Industrial Data Excellence) aims to build a data community and Common Data Space for industry in Finland. This requires effective data sharing, including adequate analytics, between the value network partners.
