The Opcomm Competence Centre works in cooperation with other competence centres as well as numerous companies, institutions and organisations which contribute significantly and concretely to the creation of a dynamic environment for the Competence Centre and promote the practical application of knowledge, competencies and technologies of the Future Internet.
