Team Finland Knowledge: new network to boost Finnish education and research cooperation


The Finnish Minister of Education and Culture has announced this January the creation of the Team Finland Knowledge. The network aims to encourage exchanges and cooperation in higher education and research and to ‘export’ Finnish knowledge in the countries where the network will operate: China, Singapore, North America, Spanish-speaking South America, Sub-Saharan Africa, India and Russia.

The network will start running in autumn 2018, with the hiring of seven experts in higher education, who will be placed in the Finnish embassies. Their role will consist of following the local higher education and science policies, promoting cooperation opportunities and visibility in the country or region and supporting cooperation between Finnish and local actors. 

Team Finland Knowledge is seen as an important step towards the fulfilment of the Finnish Government’s objective to increase internationalisation in education and research, as indicated in the roadmap for 2030 published in October 2017.
