Abstract:


In what ways does the Research and Innovation Council assist the Finnish Government
and its ministries in matters concerning research, technology, innovation and their utilization and evaluation? What is the main mission of the Council?

The Council is responsible for the strategic development and coordination of Finnish science,
technology and innovation (STI) policy, and the national innovation system as a whole. It is both a classical independent advisory body and a strategy-shaping multi-stakeholder institution, where political decision makers, administrators, academics and industrial experts jointly design and formulate major development lines and actions for national STI policy.

 

 

 

Could you describe your role and how you came to occupy this position?

The Secretary General’s task is to coordinate the work of the secretariat supporting the Council in tasks including monitoring, analysis and synthesis, and the preparation of original documents. For many years, I worked in different research and management positions at the interface between science and technology at the Finnish Meteorological Institute and later in research funding and programme coordination at the Academy of Finland. With a personal view on what works in the Finnish innovation system, it was a natural move to apply for a position in which ensuring the system actually functions correctly is a key task.

 

 

 

How does the Council coordinate Government activities in the field of STI policy?
The Council does not have decision-making power over the ministries or agencies, nor do we have a budget of our own; but traditionally the Council, chaired by the Prime Minister, has had significant influence. Guidelines agreed by the Council are regularly recognised in policy documents produced by the ministries and the most important recommendations provided by the Government programme. However, priority setting between research themes or technology areas, for example, is not in the remit of the Council.
