Disruptive technologies and changing institutions

Project Details


The strategic research programme Disruptive Technologies and Changing Institutions provides funding to research into the identification and utilisation of disruptive technologies. The research consortia are expected to address the following questions:

In the case of a concrete disruptive technology, how is it manifested in Finland and what are its potential benefits?
In order to make the best possible use of that particular disruptive technology, what changes are required in human activity, institutions and operational methods?
In what ways can the public sector best support a well-managed transition and thus create the best possible conditions for Finland to utilise disruptive technologies?

In addition, the consortia are expected to suggest ways in which we can ensure that businesses, employees, the public sector and consumers possess the resources and skills that promote an ability to adapt to the changes and risks brought about by disruptive technologies?
