Arctic media tour
26 February 2018 – 2 March 2018
Finland is a front runner at the current and emerging markets of Arctic technology. One of the best-known examples of Finland’s Arctic expertise include Arctic marine technology and related business opportunities, solutions and services. Finnish companies have designed about 80 percent of the world’s icebreakers, and about 60 percent of them have been built by Finnish shipyards.
This media tour will give insight into several areas of arctic technology, including visits both in Helsinki and in Oulu which is being considered as a gateway to Arctic Europe. Journalists will get to see how a city in the Arctic region has developed the ecosystem of new technologies with the first 5G test network in Finland and world class know-how in health technologies and cyber security.
The media tour is organized by Finnfacts, Business Finland, and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs in cooperation with local embassies.
