Collaboration with scientific community In addition to our own research and development work, we are an active player in the scientific community. Scientific collaboration strengthens our position as an industry pioneer and an innovative technology leader. We continue to be a contributor to many organizations, advancing technological development in several fields of study. We collaborate with the leading research institutes and universities to advance studies related to environmental and industrial measurements across various scientific and technological fields. Our collaboration partners also include the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) as well as several national meteorological offices around the world. We also collaborate actively with researchers around the world in a wide variety of application areas, including volcanic lightning, field campaigns measuring detailed properties of lightning discharges, and extreme weather events. We are an active participant in United Nations’ World Meteorological Organization (WMO). WMO coordinates the study of the state and behavior of the Earth’s atmosphere, including the weather and climate. It also facilitates its members’ observational networks and free, unrestricted exchange of data and information. In addition, WMO supports research to optimize the production of weather-, climate-, and water-related services worldwide. Examples of our local collaboration partners: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) American Meteorological Society (AMS) Colorado State University (CSU) The University of Nanjing (NJU) The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI). One interesting example of our collaboration with FMI is space exploration. See more > VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd.
