We share a passion for making Finland a pioneer of sustainable well-being – and we take our vision seriously and work in any way we can to achieve it. We base what we do on expertise and foresight. As an agile, experienced, future-oriented organisation, we have a wide variety of tools at our disposal to identify the need for change and to make it happen. Our role as a future-oriented fund involves creating preconditions for reform, spurring everyone towards making a change and providing opportunities for co-operation. What it means in practice is that Sitra investigates, explores and develops operating models in close co-operation with other responsible operators to support public administration.
