The plan was prepared by a working group, with significant contributions from research and business communities. It was circulated for comments.

The preparatory work drew on the Act on the Central Government Funding of Research and Development, the entries on RDI in the Programme of Prime Minister Orpo's Government, and the decisions of the parliamentary RDI working group. The allocation of R&D funding made in the 2024 budget proposal and in the General Government Fiscal Plan for 2025-2028 were also taken into account.
