Research

Research Strategy


Strong basic research combined with applied
research



Tight cooperation with the research partners in
industry, research organisations and other
universities



Post graduate studies and research are
interconnected


Research focus areas


Wireless communications, radio
engineering, communication networks


Electronics


Electronics materials, nanotechnology


Photonics


Intelligent systems


Machine vision


Ubiquitous computing


Wellness technology

EIE Research Environment


Most of the research groups function within the laboratories


Groups choose their research areas independently


Largest research grop has approx. 100 staff members (CWC)



The majority of the research functions are gathered around
Infotech groups


Infotech Oulu research centre


Umbrella organisation for 5+3 research groups


The groups are chosen according to an external evaluation after
every 4 years


Has its own doctoral school



Centre for Wireless Communications (CWC)


Functions outside the university budget funding


Own international graduate school


Typical research funding


TEKES, Academy of Finland and EU all
use total cost model


Budget = salaries (10.5/12 months) x 1.5
x 1.89 ~ 3 x salaries


For that, typically 75 % funding is possible



Some own or industrial funding is usually
needed
