Center for Internet Excellence

CIE is a research and innovation unit at the University of Oulu, which combines leading-edge Internet research, innovation processes and new infrastructures, with special focus on emerging 3D technologies.

Research and Innovation

CIE conducts multidisciplinary research on 3D technologies. We do not only focus on doing technical research and development, but also on how new technology and innovations are deployed and experienced. We thus aim to be genuinely multi-disciplinary, and that is what makes CIE distinctive from many other research organizations.
