NIMO is a EU project where researchers from Luleå University of Technology, University of Oulu and Lapin Yliopisto, Rovaniemi work together to create a strong Nordic platform in the areas of mobility and interaction, i.e. make it possible for people to use IT systems in an efficient and satisfactory way wherever they live. Interdisciplinary research, development and innovation are important keywords in achieving this.
Dan Johansson, researcher at LTU is working with application mobility, which means that your work can automatically be moved between devices.
