Nokia Technologies, also known as The Nokia Research Center, founded in 1986, is Nokia's industrial research unit consisting of about 70 researchers, engineers and scientists;[1][2][3] it has sites in seven countries: Finland, China, India, the United Kingdom and the United States.[4] Besides its research centers, in 2001 Nokia founded (and owns) INdT – Nokia Institute of Technology, a R&D institute located in Brazil.[5] Nokia operates a total of 7 manufacturing facilities[6] located at Manaus, Brazil; Beijing and Dongguan, China; Komárom, Hungary; Chennai, India; Reynosa, Mexico; and Changwon, South Korea.[7][8] Nokia's industrial design department is headquartered in Soho in London, UK with significant satellite offices in Helsinki, Finland and Calabasas, California in the US.

In June 2012, research facilities in Ulm, Germany and Burnaby, Canada closed, as part of the financial difficulties Nokia had faced.[9]

After the sale of Nokia Devices and Services to Microsoft, it is one of three remaining departments at Nokia.[10]
