The use of data creates a wide range of opportunities for different industries and provides tools to overcome crises.
It is time to move to action – the data economy requires the whole of society to roll up its collective sleeves. The roadmap is already underway. More action is needed to drive the change forward, with initiatives from society and activism from business. We call on the whole of Finland to join us in creating the best data-driven solutions.
Data Economy Monitoring
Do you have a good data source in mind that would help you get a better insight into the development of the data economy?
We are promoting the data economy collaboratively as a broad network of partners. The network, led by Sitra, brings together private and public sector actors. The roadmap’s steering group and secretariat include key ministries, the Confederation of Finnish Industries, Finnish Entrepreneurs, the Finnish Technology Industry, Business Finland and the Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities.
The steering group is chaired by board professional Kaisa Olkkonen and its full members are Kristo Lehtonen (Vice Chairperson, Sitra), Laura Eiro (Ministry of Transport and Communications), Jarkko Levasma (Ministry of Finance), Ilona Lundström (Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment), Jyri Häkämies (Confederation of Finnish Industries), Jaakko Hirvola (Technology Industries of Finland), Petri Salminen (Federation of Finnish Enterprises), Nina Kopola (Business Finland), Erja Turunen (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland), Lauri Eloranta (The Central Organisation of Finnish Trade Unions), Elisa Kettunen (Association of Finnish Local and Regional Authorities) and Jonna Korhonen (Ministry of Education and Culture). The deputy members of the steering group are Lasse Laitinen (Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment), Maria Rautavirta (Ministry of Transport and Communications) and Kalle Kantola (VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland).
Sitra and the participating organisations invite all stakeholders who want to make Finland a pioneer in the fair data economy to participate in the roadmap work.
