-This is the third seminar in our research project NIMO (Nordic Interaction and Mobility Research Platform). We collaborate with the University of Uleåborg and Rovaniemi to build a common research platform, says project leader Karl Andersson, Senior Lecturer at Luleå University of Technology in Skellefteå. The collaboration with Skellefteå Municipality and the local IT industry is an important part of the project.
