Reboot IoT Factory

Reboot IoT Factory offers a unique opportunity to be a part of the next generation of Industry 4.0. We bring together forerunner factories, IoT solution providers and top-class research organizations to revolutionize the competitiveness of Finnish manufacturing industry.

The Reboot model of operation is based on co-creation within actual production environments. Each forerunner factory acts as a research and development platform, as well as a reference customer for selected SMEs. This gives Finnish IoT solution providers the competitive push needed to succeed in the international markets. Forerunner factories advance in their digitalization strategies and gain business impact from adopted IoT solutions.

The Reboot model executes through a series of sprints and continuous sharing of experiences, ensuring a dynamic and flexible method of operation.  Close-knit operating of the consortium enabled fast utilization of transferable best practices.

Customer references from forerunner factories

New opportunities based on exposure within the Reboot ecosystem

To forerunner factories

Facilitated progress in digitalization strategy implementation

Business impact from adopted IoT solutions provided by Finnish SMEs

Ongoing dialogue with top-class research


Currently, the following sites of these major industrial operators are acting as forerunner factories in Reboot IoT Finland:

  • ABB-Vaasa
  • Nokia-Oulu
  • GE Healthcare-Helsinki
  • Ponsse-Vieremä
  • Kongsberg-Rauma

These factories offer their premises as development and innovation platforms as well as forums for experience sharing. They are all willing to learn, try and tailor IoT solutions. After the piloting phase, the viable solutions are then scaled up.

Research organizations produce new scientific knowledge, which IoT solution providers can package as proof-of-concepts in order to test and validate against needs of the factories..

Our research partners include

  • University of Oulu
  • VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland
  • Åbo Akademi
