Arctic expertise 

The sectors where Finland has specialised Arctic expertise include environmental technology, shipping, sustainable tourism, telecommunications, meteorology and transport systems. As summarised by Prime Minister Sipilä, what works in Finland works everywhere.

Thanks to our solid expertise on cold conditions the airports stay open, trains are running, icebreakers clear shipping lanes, buildings have a stable temperature, and schools stay open independent of the season and weather. Finland’s oil spill response capacity is of a high standard.

We also have extensive, high-level scientific research on Arctic issues.
