Description

Description

 

Creating Location Intelligence for Europe.

The Location Innovation Hub (LIH) will unleash the vast potential of location data, services and technology to improve our society. Our world leading competence centre will target value chains serving Finland’s and Europe’s key domains, including the built environment, bioeconomy (agri-food, forestry), transportation and health & wellbeing. Location Intelligence (LI) is crucial to the smooth running and interoperation of services used in each of these. In line with the European data strategy and the European Commission’s Green Deal which, together, set the ambitious “Destination Earth” goal - building a digital twin of the Earth - we aim, with our location intelligence services and data spaces, to develop an Innovation Architecture and thus build the capacity needed for enhanced usage of AI, HPC and cyber security technologies. We will support SMEs, mid-caps and public sector bodies, creating location-enabled data ecosystems in each domain. Reference implementations and testing environments will both demonstrate the benefits of location services and enable SMEs to create new innovations in support of circular, API and data economies. Access to high quality location data is an essential factor in building high performance, robust and trustworthy AI systems. But, LIH goes further by providing access to business development, skills, training,funding sources and markets in Europe and beyond through our networks.
