Innovation Strategy - Helsinki Metropolitan Area
The first innovation strategy for the Helsinki Region shows the way forward for collaboration (regionally, nationally and internationally) that will more efficiently harness the huge innovation potential of the metropolitan area.
All of the elements of an inventive knowledge-based economy are present and correct in the Helsinki Metropolitan Area - at least in theory. However, actual economic performance indicates that there are problems in effectively commercializing this inventiveness.
The most widely recognized strength of the Finnish innovation system lies in advanced collaboration between the private and public sectors.
The Innovation Strategy has four pillars:
- Improving the international appeal of research and expertise
- Reinforcing knowledge-based clusters and creating common development platforms
- Reform and innovations in public services
- Support for innovative activities
A full description of the four-pillar strategy can be found in the downloadable report (right hand). The report includes 26 action proposals that should be specified and for which concrete measurable objectives are required. Most of the proposals may in principle be implemented quickly. Many of the proposals will require co-operation across organizational and local authority boundaries, and this will not occur without active further preparation.
