Technology is the most important source of growth in productivity and the national economy. Technology affects society and prosperity in many positive ways. International competitiveness comparisons bear witness to a successful history. Public financing of technology encourages enterprises to innovation and research cooperation. Docs 30615 02-02 Slide4: Evaluations of the Finnish Science, Technology and Innovation Environment In a comparison made by the University of United Nations (2001 State of Future) Finland is ranked 2nd in overall ranking. Finland is also ranked 2nd in Education, Technology and Information Indices. Finland is among the most advanced countries in Europe measured by several indicators relating to investments in Randamp;D, innovativeness, scientific publishing, patenting and high-tech exports according to the report made by the Research DG of European Commission (2001). Results are based on statistical key figures which measure the inputs and impacts of national innovation and research policies. According to a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report released in 2001, Finland is the most advanced country in creating and using technology. In the report, technological development is estimated by the Technology Achievement Index (TAI), which measures the capabilities of countries to create and utilise technology in a network economy. IMD (International Institute for Management Development) ranks Finland second in overall competitiveness in 2002. According to WEF (World Economic Forum), Finland is ranked 1st in current competitiveness, growth competitiveness and economic creativity. In innovation capacity Finland is ranked 2nd and in technology 3rd. Sources: THE UNITED NATIONS UNIVERSITY: The Millenium project 2001 EU: Indicators for benchmarking of national research policies.
