Fêted Finnish innovation system falling apart

Fêted Finnish innovation system falling apart - 19 November 2009 euractiv.com

Finland's celebrated innovation system is in need of a radical overhaul, according to a new international review. A panel of experts concluded that the landscape for innovation in Finland has become "fragmented and suffers from weak international links".

Finland is failing to attract foreign researchers, well-educated expats and the R&D departments of knowledge-intensive overseas businesses, the evaluation finds. Strong incentives to increase the mobility of researchers and strengthen international partnerships in universities and research institutions are proposed as a remedy.
