invitation-only Tampere Imaging Ecosystem event for imaging experts from
around the world, organized by Business Tampere, the Tampere region
economic development agency. Christof Roduner (VP Engineering, CIO and
co-founder of Scandit) will be presenting during the event.

opportunity that exists for them to be a part of one of the top five
imaging ecosystems in the world,” said Oliver Hussey, Senior Business
Advisor at Business Tampere. “We look forward to continuing to support
them as they become an established part of the local community.”
