The Research Council of Finland’s Flagship Programme is an instrument that supports high-quality research and increases the economic and societal impact emerging from the research. The Flagships are competence clusters that carry out cutting-edge research in their respective fields. The Flagship Programme strengthens cooperation between research institutions, companies and other actors in society.
Flagships create future expertise and sustainable solutions to societal challenges. The results of the first six Flagships have shown to have had many kinds of impact during their first years of operation:

- double the amount of business funding compared to Research Council funding
- five times the amount of EU funding compared to Research Council Flagship funding
