Innovations are the key element in prosperity and wealth of nations. Innovations are encouraged and supported around the world by various means, and Finland is estimated . Innovations not only require bright minds, bold risk taking, and devoted entrepreneurship. The whole society needs to support and encourage generation of innovations.

Lectures on the Finnish innovation ecosystem, and the support to innovators have been presented, and innovation ideas of Russian companies, students, and researchers have been collected, analyzed, and evaluated. A number of concrete business actions have been promoted and networking of Finnish and Russian companies catalyzed.
