The mission of the Trusted Digital Societies programme is to create affordable, accessible, and trusted digital services for citizens. The five-year Business Finland-funded programme will focus on services in the financial sector, the social, health and welfare sectors, and the energy sector.

We aim to pull Finnish companies towards global success with the target of winning large business contracts. Our goal is to achieve this by seeking business opportunities and giving market insight, and by creating joint platform offerings with our ecosystem partners.

The event will take place in person in Keilaniemi, Espoo and online at 13:00-16:00.

Join us at our showcase event to

  • learn what is the research ambition for the programme,
  • what is currently going on in each of the research focus areas,
  • meet the current partners in the network, and
  • get a chance to present your project idea or company as a potential partner for the ecosystem (3 mins).

The event is meant for both existing and potential partners – startups, research groups and companies alike. Come to hear what kinds of topics, partners and funding opportunities are available through the ecosystem.
