Policy briefs offer research-based information to support decision-making. SRC-funded projects produce a huge amount of research knowledge about Finnish society, and this knowledge should be passed on to policymakers so that it can be used, for example, in the preparation of legislation. A policy brief is a good tool for supporting science communication and promoting the social impact of research.
Solutions cards offer research-based "solutions from science" (ratkaisuja tieteestä in Finnish) for decision makers, media and all those interested in societal relevance and impact of research. The cards reflect the key themes funded by the Strategic Research Council (SRC) in Finland and present the variety of the research themes in a phenomenon-oriented way. Each Solution card targets an important societal challenge faced by Finnish society and suggests research-based answers how to tackle the problem.
