Nokia plans to align its research and development (R&D) operations in
the company’s focused portfolio of future products. The planned changes are
expected to affect up to 230 employees at Nokia’s Oulu site in
approximately 2 % of Nokia’s R&D personnel globally.
Nokia aims to support the employees with alternative solutions, such as
finding new positions within the company for as many employees as possible.
Nokia will begin consultations with employee representatives about these plans
where voluntary severance packages among other topics will be discussed.
Nokia maintains a strong R&D presence in both sites; the company has over
2 000 employees in Oulu and over 1 000 employees in
employed in its research and development activities.
