Expertise is the key to success

For decades Finland has been one of the leading countries in knowledge and expertise. Knowledge is worth investing in, as agility and the ability to innovate keep us globally competitive.

Investment in knowledge and skills is essential if Finland is to maintain its high level of technological expertise and hold its own in an environment of fierce international competition.

At the beginning of the 2010s, Technology Industries of Finland and its Centennial Foundation together with technology companies helped provide the start-up capital for two foundation-based universities, Aalto University and Tampere University of Technology, by donating around 140 million euros. In 2015, the technology industry donated a total of 11 million euros to four universities of technology. 

Close collaboration between companies and educational institutions will insure that graduates find good jobs in Finland.
