What kinds of novel digital tools and technologies create transformative change towards sustainability? 

New technologies and digitalization are integrated in our daily lives, we interact with gadgets and digital systems that reflect the world in real time, which creates new technological needs and challenges. The University of Turku answers to these challenges in many areas, our researchers developing new technologies and investigating the interaction between humans and machines. The demand for sustainability motivates our research: sustainable technology and technology that solves sustainability challenges are our explicit emphases. Central themes of our research include:

  • artificial intelligence and machine learning
  • new sensor technologies and sensor fusion
  • virtual and augmented reality
  • digital twins
  • autonomous vehicles and robots
  • (natural) language technology
  • additive manufacturing and 3D printing
  • location technologies, remote sensing and earth observation
  • space technology
