As we get ready to welcome the coming new year 2021, we would like to take a moment to reflect on the past twelve months through some memories and highlights that make us feel especially grateful and proud.
Exactly a year after the plans were initially announced, we opened the UROS Innovation Center in Oulu, Finland. Due to the current pandemic, the official opening ceremony will take place when the situation allows it to be executed in a safe manner.
We are proud to have been awarded the AAA creditworthiness rating for the third consecutive year. The rating is the highest a company can achieve, demonstrating financial strength and stability.
Our Chief Strategy Officer Oscar Falkman wrote about the challenges and solutions for unlocking the benefits of the eUICC technology for achieving global connectivity freedom. Read the full piece here.
Our water solutions UROS Sense and UROS Flow received recognition in the APAC region in the form of two awards; the HKB Technology Award for IoT Utilities in Hong Kong, as well as the 2020 PCM Biz IT Excellence Award.
We had the chance to support the Vauhtijuoksu 2020 hosted by the Information Guild of the University of Oulu benefiting MIELI Ry, an organisation promoting mental health and preventive mental health care in Finland.
To maintain a fresh approach to the problems we work hard to tackle each day, we kept not only our minds flexible, but also our bodies with remote yoga sessions.
Our Vice President, Sales & Business Development Mika Pohjola wrote about the effects of the rapidly changing digital field and how its challenges can simultaneously be viewed as opportunities. Read the full piece here.
Aamulehti newspaper from the City of Tampere, the home town of the UROS LIVE arena, visited us to get a better idea of who we are and what we do. Read the full story on their website or on Helsingin Sanomat (in Finnish, for subscribers).
Before Covid-19, we got to meet some interesting people at various career events organised in Oulu, Finland. Hopefully we’ll meet again soon!
In Finland, during the final years of secondary school, students usually spend a week at a workplace of their choice, gaining experience and insight that will help guide them at the beginning stages of their future careers. Among the students we got to host was Veeti, who was particularly interested in ICT subjects, and would like to work in tech after finishing his studies.
We were excited to welcome many new team members who joined the company over the course of the year, some of whom are pictured here.
