    Idea – The starting point of everything. Nurturing an idea and turning it into an innovation takes time, but is a rewarding process. It requires an exceptional cooperation network and experts. Neurocenter Finland is about to launch a “Find a Researcher” tool (due 06/2019), using which a company can map and contact experts and potential partners based in Finland, ranging from basic to clinical researchers.  Moreover, this website compiles and presents Finnish research institutes,  health care units and third-party actors, such as patient organizations.

    Regulation of research – A challenge or an opportunity? In order to protect research subjects, Finland enforces strict regulations for clinical research. First, the research hypothesis is defined; then, before launching the research implementation, the company needs to apply for applicable permits and ethical committee approvals. Neurocenter Finland facilitates these approval processes by bringing together all key principles and procedures and clarifying them on this website.
