Abstract:

 

 

“KNOWLEDGE AND INNOVATION are strategictools for success in the global economy. Ourcountries’ success depends on innovative talents and on our companies’ ability to innovate.Finland’s core capabilities include highly educated people, high investments in R&D and a consistent innovation policy. Close cooperation between government, academia and theprivate sector is the cornerstone of the Finnish concept. 

 

The very nature of the global economy challenges us each and every day. In addressing these challenges, we believe that education, research and innovation form the only sustainable basis for the renewal of the economy.The reality of business life has shown that if a leading position is taken for granted, your competitors will surprise you by taking the lead. This, we Finns know all too well from our own experience in the ICT sector. As for business, this is likewise true for whole societies – even societies must continuously renew themselves to stay ahead. I believe that innovation cannot be taught because the very core of innovation is that you create something no one has done before. But we can create a suitable environment forinnovations by prioritising education, further strengthening public-private partnerships and by encouraging creativity.

 

In our country we seem to be on the right track. Finland has quickly grown into a world-famous start-up nation thanks to a couple of global success stories – such as gaming companies Rovio with their Angry Birds, and Supercell, which recently got a huge US $1.5 billion investment.
