We've now completed the transition phase for SIMO from under the wings of Helsinki University to our company Simosol Oy. Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation has awarded us a project for the next stage development of SIMO. The project is supported by UPM-Kymmene Ltd., Tornator Oy, Metsähallitus, Forestry Development Centre Tapio and the Forestry Centres, and will extend to 2010.
The focus of the new project is to transform SIMO into a tool for everybody, well, almost at least. See the project page for details
