Huawei plans new R&D centre in Finland

A few months ago we heard that Huawei was planning to spend £1.3 billion in the UK on a number of projects during the next five years. It’s now announced new plans to invest €70 million (£56 million) to establish a research and development centre in Helsinki. The money will be spent over the next five years as the R&D centre expands to employ more than 100 people.

Huawei’s Finnish R&D centre will start by focussing on optimising the user experience of existing mobile operating systems.

Kenneth Fredriksen, Vice-President for Huawei Central, Eastern and Nordic Europe, said “We believe the key to building our brand is to provide consumers with a reliable and differentiated user experience. The open and innovative environment in Finland is an ideal place for Huawei to strengthen our global R&D capabilities for devices, creating opportunities for both Huawei and the Finnish telecommunications industry.”

The company, which is based in China, currently employs more than 7,000 people across Europe.
