Commissioned research and collaborative projects


Commissioned research – research tailored for companies

Commissioned research means research, survey, or other work, the costs of which are wholly paid for by the customer.

Commissioned research carried out in cooperation with industry and business will be done in confidence, in an unbiased manner, and as agreed. The research results and intellectual property will be transferred under the ownership of the customer in accordance with the research agreement.

Commissioned research may mean a more comprehensive research project, smaller service research, or a thesis.


Publicly financed research projects

Apart from commissioned research, it is possible for a company to participate also in publicly financed research projects.

For example, with Business Finland's research projects companies can participate in costs with a smaller share and be allowed to play a part in guiding the direction of the research and be among the first to utilize the research results.
