The current resources of universities must be bolstered so that they can provide high-quality education and an environment for scientific work. We must emphasise our ability to secure EU funding and entice knowledgeable people to come to Finland from abroad, into both universities and companies. On the European level, Finland is one of the leading innovators, but in recent times our investments have been among the weakest in the EU. Therefore, it is now time to make proactive and long-term RDI policies instead of individual investments.
Finding a shared vision on RDI matters now at the beginning of the decade is crucial for the future of Finland. Finding this vision means we will be able to see the results of our policies at the end of the decade at the latest.
