Health care and bioscience identified as key priorities for FInland
Health care and bioscience identified as key priorities for Finland.
FinnSight 2015 experts have completed their work to identify what are considered the main focus areas in science, technology, business and industry, and society.
The areas that emerged most prominently were the management of global risks, energy and environment issues, the renewal of the health care system as well as ICT and biosciences applications. All of these areas require science and technology collaboration that is based in human needs.
FinnSight 2015, a joint project between the Academy of Finland and Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation, involved 120 leading Finnish experts.
The project was organised into ten panels dealing with the themes of learning and learning society, services and service innovations, well-being and health, environment and energy, infrastructures and security, bio-expertise and bio-society, information and communications, understanding and human interaction, materials and the global economy. In all, the panels identified some 80 areas of expertise that Finland should focus in order to reach scientific and technological breakthroughs and new innovations.
