Finns are a research-friendly people. The Finnish social security system and individual social security numbers ensure that the background information of the samplers is traceable yet secure.

The research infrastructure in Finland adheres to high international standard and is almost always accessible to diverse operators (researchers and companies at home and abroad). Finland also has high-quality national research registries.

High-class research and reliability come together in Finland.
