    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), with which a company may map and contact experts and potential partners that are based in Finland, ranging from basic to clinical researchers.  Moreover, this website compiles and presents Finnish research institutes,  health care units and third sector actors, such as patient organisations.

    Regulation of research – A challenge or an opportunity? In order to protect the research objects, Finland enforces a strict regulation of clinical research. Once the research hypothesis has been defined, and before launching the research implementation, one needs to apply for the applicable permits and ethical committee approvals. Neurocenter Finland shall facilitate the approval processes by combining all key principles and procedures on this website.
