VIDEO: Finnish Flagships – Introduction

FinnCERES – Competence Centre for the Materials Bioeconomy

The FinnCERES flagship focuses on future solutions in bioeconomy and materials research. Researchers in the flagship aim to develop novel lignocellulose-based materials from forestry resources for future industrial production in international markets. These completely new materials could be widely adopted in several areas of application: textiles, wearables, household products, air and water purification systems, next-generation catalysts and energy harvesting systems, among others.

6Genesis – 6G-Enabled Wireless Smart Society & Ecosystem

The 6Genesis flagship focuses on developing future wireless technologies aiming at defining fundamental 6G technologies. The flagship will support the industry in finalizing the 5G standard by carrying out large scale pilots in targeted vertical applications with an operatorgrade test network. It will also develop essential technology components needed for 6G, targeting areas such as wireless connectivity, device and circuit technologies, distributed intelligent computing and novel applications of these.

FCAI – Finnish Center for Artificial Intelligence

The mission of the FCAI flagship is to create real artificial intelligence for real people in the real world. The research is based on top-tier expertise in machine learning, especially probabilistic modelling and deep learning, and on multidisciplinary collaboration with experts from other fields. The activities of FCAI span a wide spectrum of fields, versatile training and cooperation with the industry sector.

INVEST – Inequalities, Interventions and New Welfare State

The INVEST flagship aims at improving wellbeing and skill development among Finnish children, young people and early adults. At the same time, the flagship will develop a new welfare state model that is more equal, better targeted to different life stages and more anticipatory than the current model, as well as economically and socially sustainable.

PREIN – Photonics Research and Innovation

The PREIN flagship brings together actors of the Finnish photonics ecosystem in an integrated network that covers the whole path from basic to applied research and to further development and commercialisation of disruptive photonic technologies. This will facilitate the transfer of results from the research towards innovative application in telecommunications, biomedicine, healthcare, energy and environmental engineering, manufacturing and consumer products and other societal benefits.

iCAN – Digital Precision Cancer Medicine Platform

The iCAN flagship builds on a strong basis in precision cancer medicine (PCM), and connects it in a novel way with the ongoing digital health revolution, leveraging on Finland’s strengths, such as healthcare registries and a digitised healthcare system.The flagship aims to facilitate breakthrough discoveries leading to improved treatments and quality of life for cancer patients. Within the flagship’s pilot projects, patients with colorectal, breast or ovarian cancer or leukaemia have an opportunity to participate at all stages of research
