Finnish research in neurosciences and product development are renowned and on par with international high standards. A high-quality education system, excellence in technology, “research-friendly” citizens, and decades worth of register data are among the factors contributing to the success of Finnish neuroscience research.

Research can help us find solutions for promoting brain health, preventing brain diseases and improving the quality of life of people with brain diseases. The Neurocenter Finland is tasked with supporting the work of researchers, fostering collaboration and keeping the discussion on brain health on track.
