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.
Below you will find policy briefs produced by SRC-funded projects in English. You can also use the search function on the website to search for policy brief. More policy briefs are available in Finnish on our Finnish web pages. The newest policy briefs are also listed to our online service ratkaisujatieteesta.fi.
