Research competence focuses on regular mobile services (usability), information security, simulation research and combining computational sciences with information technology such as machine vision solutions.

 Resource-wise Jyväskylä

Resource wisdom -- reducing consumption of natural resources – promotes an area's vitality, companies' competitive ability and residents' well-being. Jyväskylä is enthusiastic about and committed to promoting resource wisdom in daily life. The city also supports the creation of new innovations. Jyväskylä acted as Sitra's pilot city in the Resource Wisdom project and practical trials. After project completion, resource wisdom became a natural part of the City of Jyväskylä's operating processes.
