Science Meets Regions in Helsinki-Uusimaa

The Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Council has started a programme Science Meets Regions in Helsinki-Uusimaa, which can be regarded ambitious – also according to international standards. The entirety arranged in cooperation with the Joint Research Center of the European Commission aims to promote the spearheading of the objectives in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme by decision-making based on various information.

– We have invited regional businesses, scientific communities and municipalities to strive for climate neutrality, investments and work opportunities together. We approach comprehensive issues by doing things differently, in a new way. We bring together the scientists and artists with actors offering experience-based information, and representing businesses, Mr Markku Markkula, Chair of the Regional Board says.

Top ranking programme with many events – aiming at innovations

The opening of the policymaker forum in the Helsinki Music Centre on 4 April brought EU actors and decisionmakers of the Helsinki-Uusimaa Region together with representatives for science, art, business, the public and private sector. 

Science Meets Regions will continue with three innovation camps 4 May, 1 June and 17 August 2022. These themes are in line with the spearheads found in the Helsinki-Uusimaa Regional Programme 2030. The first innovation camp aims at furthering the research and development activities in our region, and especially the ways of acting together.

The programme will be culminating in September when the final seminar is held. Thoughts and actions around the spearheads will then be put together. The long-term objectives of the programme Science Meets Regions in Helsinki-Uusimaa are innovations combining scientific and artistic information.

It is possible to follow the policymaker forum on Twitter and take part in the discussions. Our aim is to create innovation and well-being in Helsinki-Uusimaa.
