Research matters

At the University of Helsinki, our mission is to solve global issues and create the preconditions for a better future. To build a better world, we need education opportunities for young people, an ambitious science policy and long-term funding.

The next government must take urgent action to raise the level of Finnish education. In addition, we need investment in RDI activities, increasingly ambitious science and research policies, and improved dialogue between politicians and researchers.
