Founded in 2010, Sulava Oy is a growth company and a trendsetter in the information work of the digital era. Sulava's services and solutions promote a new kind of work culture, which has the efficient utilisation of cloud services and social technologies at its core. Sulava combines deep knowledge in information technology, information work and communications in particular.

Sulava helps customers move from old working methods to a more productive work culture of the digital era – with our focus being on people. Projects implemented by Sulava continue well past the point where others tend to wrap their own projects up: after the purchases have been made and the systems deployed. This is the time when the real value of the IT projects for a company's business operations is measured.



Kittilä is a lively municipality in Fell Lapland, a home to about 6500 people. Thanks to its excellent location, versatile services, working connections and fabulous natural surroundings, the area offers good circumstances for inhabitants, travellers and companies.

The eight northern seasons captivate imagination from the polar night to the midnight sun, from early spring to the dazzling colours of autumn. The landscape is shaped by several magnificent fells together with the grand and free-flowing river Ounasjoki that runs through the municipality. Nature, several programme services and cultural activities provide the area with a versatile selection of possibilities for leisure-time activities.

Project EFINED - Energy Filtering Non-Equilibrium Devices
EFINED aims for revolutionary energy filtering nano-devices for information and communications technology (ICT), sensing, and imaging. It is at the intersection of phononics, photonics, nanoscale electro-thermal devices and molecular engineering. The project is supported by European Union Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Open under Horizon 2020 programme.

EFINED is being carried out by a consortium of 5 partners representing a European-wide community of experts on state-of-the-art molecular synthesis, micro and nano devices, bolometers, scanning probe microscopy technologies and theoretical modelling. 



​Quantum Technology Finland (QTF) brings together scientific and technological excellence and cutting-edge research infrastructures, to harness quantum phenomena in solid-state-based quantum devices and applications. Around 100 researchers from Aalto University, University of Turku and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland work together for the joint goals of the centre. QTF aims to introduce novel approaches for control of quantum coherence and dissipation, and to develop new and improved quantum circuits and hybrid architectures.
