A high-level working group proposes that the EU double its spending on research and innovation. Finnish industries think that in the future, Finns may have better chances to get money from the EU since Finnish views have been been taken into consideration in the group’s report. Jorma Turunen of the Technology Industries of Finland says the EU’s significance as a supporter of Finnish businesses and universities has increased as Finnish investments in research and innovation have dropped. It is unclear whether the EU will be able to help as the Union’s budget faces pressure from Brexit.
