Background & Policy context

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is the largest multi-technological applied research organisation in the Nordic countries. It was established in 1942 and is part of the Finnish innovation system under the domain of the Ministry of Employment and the Economy. It is a not-for-profit research organisation with a turnover of €245 million and with 2700 staff.

VTT provides solutions, services, research and technology, related not only to transport but a very wide range of sectors, including electronics, energy, information technology, pharmaceuticals, forestry, logistics, chemicals and industrial systems.

Strategic Objectives

VTT's website provides a database of all VTT's publications in the public domain, covering all sectors (not only transport). Over 50 000 publications are available and some 2000 publications annually are made by VTT and added to the database.
