The Academy of Finland conducts periodic reviews of the state of scientific research in Finland, producing materials that support universities’ and research institutes’ development efforts and that strengthen the knowledge base of science policymaking.
The 2018 review examines the human resources and funding available for research at universities and government research institutes. The assessments of publishing, scientific impact and co-publications are based on bibliometric methods.
The review includes a separate examination regarding the national target of raising R&D investment to four per cent of GDP and regarding the factors that are expected to shape the contents of future research and the general conditions for doing research.
