“These independent findings reflect the significant contribution we make to developing industry standards, our investment in research and development, and the strength of Nokia’s patent portfolio. For over three decades, we have been significantly contributing to the development of industry standards, holding a variety of leadership positions in major industry standardization bodies,” Lukander added.
