Innovation ecosystems and international human capital
Opetus- ja kulttuuriministeriö Työ- ja elinkeinoministeriö
Aika: ti 25.4. klo 12.00– 16.00
Can Finnish innovation ecosystems boost their creativity and competitiveness by promoting the perspective of international human capital? How can we channel the under-utilised international human capital into creating new jobs and economic growth through innovation and co-creation? What can we do to facilitate access of international talents to our professional and business communities?
The event is part of the International talents boosting growth agenda of the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and is organised together with the Ministry of Education and Culture and VTT.
The objective of the event is to bring together key players and map out ways to promote the inclusiveness of our business ecosystem and innovation platforms. The event is targeted to innovation and co-creation stakeholders as well as the changemakers in professional and business communities and policymakers. The event is also open to companies and international talents.
