Parliamentary Working Group on Research, Development and Innovation 2022

The Parliamentary Working Group on Research, Development and Innovations' task is to draw up a long-term plan for R&D funding and to monitor the implementation of the policies initiated by the previous parliamentary RDI working group, which operated during 2021. Finland has set a goal of increasing its research and development expenditure to four per cent of GDP by 2030 in line with the Government Programme and the National Roadmap for Research, Development and Innovation.

The Government appointed a new Parliamentary Working Group on Research, Development and Innovation in April 2022.
