The University of Oulu’s unique development story has had a significant impact on the development of Northern Finland and made the Oulu region a centre for growth and well-being. At the same time, the impacts of our research and innovation activities can be seen worldwide. We began our story as a regional operator, and we have now developed into a global actor.
