Innovation ecosystems – a meeting place for research and the business sector


​Innovation ecosystems provide an efficient infrastructure for tackling increasingly complex future challenges that require more and more multifaceted and interdisciplinary expertise.

The year 2018 saw VTT begin to build eight international innovation ecosystems focusing on our strategic priorities.

VTT’s innovation ecosystems:

Our innovation ecosystems provide solutions to challenges relating to smart energy, bioeconomy, synthetic biology, future food production, preventive health care, autonomous systems, industrial renewal and the electronics industry.

The ecosystems are designed to enable efficient cooperation between international research institutions and businesses and to make Finland the home of leading innovation clusters in these fields.

Significant business-led partnership networks have already emerged around the innovation ecosystems, which are striving to turn research findings and innovations into international business in close cooperation with researchers.
