We are happy to invite you to the seminar of innovation and growth research to hear how companies and value chains have survived during the war in Ukraine, how companies' decision-making has been affected by sustainable development and perspectives on challenge-oriented innovation policy.
The aim of the innovation research funded by Business Finland is to find solutions to the global challenges of the Finnish economy and society. It also seeks to promote dialogue between researchers and stakeholders, such as policy makers.
