Finland is internationally leading in nanotechnology resarch but invests even more. Now Tekes launches the programme FinNano, expected to further increase the competitiveness of Finnish nanotechnological research.
With 200 nano scientists in 30 laboratories across the Helsinki area, the city makes up an important nanotech area in addition to the environments in Oulu, Tampere, Jyväskylä, Joensuu and Turku. The FinNano programme is expected to create more cooperation between these areas and with environments abroad. The end result is going to be more commercial products resulting from nanotech research. The programme has 70 million euro, which is a co-funding between the authoroties and the industry. This makes Finland one of the leading European countries when it comes to funding of nanotech research per capita.
