Nokia unit to streamline its Multimedia research and development unit
Posted on 11-Jan-2005 22:59 | Filed under: News



Nokia's Multimedia Business Group will streamline its global research and development activities. This activity reflects Nokia's recently announced aims to increase the efficiency of research and development work across the company. Nokia has earlier set a target to bring overall Nokia R&D expenditure down to 9% - 10% of net sales by the end of 2006.

As a part of the activity, Multimedia product roadmaps have been streamlined and cross-functional synergies have been identified. Streamlining has a global scope but the downsizing is mainly expected to materialize in Germany and Finland. The number of personnel reductions will be decided after negotiations with employee representatives are finalized.

"Reducing personnel is always a very tough decision to make. However, the planned streamlining of our R&D network will enable us to grow our business in a profitable way without sacrificing future business potential," said Anssi Vanjoki, Executive Vice President, Multimedia, Nokia. "Our multimedia strategy remains unchanged. We see very strong momentum in our smart imaging business and while games, music and media are still in a more early development phase, we continue to see great potential also in these areas."

The planned reductions are expected to materialize gradually during 2005.
