Nanotechnologies can be understood as
an essential part of the human progress
towards the globally connected world
where the physical reality and digital,
virtual services and information are
Graphene is perhaps the brightest
highlight of the nanotechnology research.

Finnish Model for Collaboration between Industry and Universities,
supported by Academy of Finland and Tekes
Tekes: the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation. Funding the best
ideas from companies, research organizations and producers of public services.
• Nokia and its industrial partners are getting funding from Tekes, university partners
from the Academy of Finland
• Tekes programs o!er good opportunities to create continuum between university
research and industrial exploitation
• In larger programs, the synergies between Finnish companies can be built more
e!ectively than in separate projects.
" Links to other industry areas can be created more e!ectively
• Programs also provide a path for longer-term work
