Data centres can create thousands of new jobs in Finland in the years to come. Oxford Research estimates in a report published on Monday that investments in data centres can create up to 50,000 full-time equivalents in Finland over the next ten years. An average of 5,000 people could therefore find themselves building or working at a data centre every year.
