Policy briefs

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.
