Digitalization is a global megatrend. The growth potential of the Finnish economy is also connected to digitalization.

We will survive many of the biggest social changes – climate change, the aging population, globalization – when we utilize ICT more effectively. Digital services will also make our everyday lives much easier.

The technology industry is experiencing an upheaval in manufacturing. In addition to automation, we now speak of the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence.

In 2023, Technology Industries of Finland decided to invest ten million euros in accelerating the utilisation of AI in Finland.

In addition, the Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation will donate EUR 3.2 million for the founding of Aalto University’s new AI research centre.
