Partners and Clients


We collaborate with diverse partners and clients across various sectors of society. As a politically independent research organization, we engage in both large-scale research consortiums and smaller client projects. Our work is supported by numerous funding sources, including research foundations like the Academy of Finland, cities and municipalities, ministries, companies as well as worker’s and employer’s unions.

We have also been receiving a yearly general grant from the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Below you can find our partners and customers from 2019–2023.
