Research organisations and donors will take into account the UN's Sustainable Development Goals in the targeting and funding of research.
The Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, the Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Ministry of Education and Culture will ensure that cooperation between ministries that aims to increase Finland's competence base will continue.
