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.
