Business Finland will now provide partnership funding for research, development and innovation projects related to the themes of these leading companies’ ecosystems.

  1. Study the roadmaps of the leading companies’ ecosystems.
  2. Discuss with the leading companies and Business Finland’s contact persons.
  3. Apply for funding by October 30, 2020.
