Tampere Research Center for Information and Media (TRIM)

TRIM, founded in 2009, is a research institute for basic and strategic research on three main areas:

  • information retrieval
  • game research, and
  • information and media practices

The research strategy in TRIM focuses on the essential research challenges of the information society and aims at producing information that is widely applicable both in developing new information systems or experience based interactive media products and in understanding better the behaviour of the people working with information and media.

TRIM employs about 40 people, over half of them work in different research projects. The research at TRIM is funded by e.g. Academy of Finland, Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, European Union and private companies. Our operations require strong networking, and our research centre has its representatives in many international journals, associations, organizing committees for conferences and numerous other national and international expert bodies.
