About the study
The International Talent Finland Research Project is funded by the Confederation of Finnish Industries, Technology Industries of Finland, Local Government and County Employers KT, Keva, Academic Engineers and Architects in Finland, Industrial Employees TP, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, Business Finland, and the Cities of Helsinki, Espoo, Tampere, and Oulu.
A hybrid publication event will be held for the survey on 25 October 2022 from 10:30–12:00 at Lasipalatsi. Please register here. You can attend the event either in person or via the live stream.
The research is being conducted by E2 Tutkimus, a non-profit research institute. E2 Tutkimus is a multidisciplinary research institute that provides information to municipalities, ministries, companies, organisations, foundations, political decision-makers, and the media. The project’s duration is between October 2021 and March 2023. Work will be completed ahead of the parliamentary elections in Spring 2023.
The research project will answer the following questions: How can Finland become a country that invites, engages, and attracts talent, and where it is easy for expatriate Finns to return or foreigners to come and work? How could people help to create the Finland of tomorrow from abroad? The project’s monitoring committee is chaired by Mikko Räsänen, a senior advisor at the Confederation of Finnish Industries. Johanna Ketola, a senior researcher at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, is the Vice Chair.
