• Mission

    The mission of the Finnish Institute in London is to identify emerging issues important to contemporary society in Finland, the UK and the Republic of Ireland and to act as catalyst for positive social change through the impact of the mutually beneficial partnerships it creates. It operates at the cutting edge and takes calculated risk to achieve its mission.

    The Institute works with artists, researchers, experts and policy makers in the United Kingdom, Finland and the Republic of Ireland to promote strong networks in the fields of culture and society. New and unexpected collaborations are created and facilitated as the Institute supports the creative industries, artistic interventions, research, foresight and social innovation in new, socially important areas.
