Universities Finland UNIFI

Universities Finland, or Unifi for short, is a co-operational organisation for Finnish universities. Unifi promotes higher education, research and arts by addressing far-reaching, university related issues. It aims to influence the Finnish higher education and research policy, and to promote common interests of universities.

Unifi’s predecessor the Finnish Council of University Rectors was founded in 1969. All 14 Finnish universities are Unifi’s members.
