The position paper builds upon Finland’s preliminary views on FP9, combining Finnish national priorities, research profiles of Finnish universities, and bottom-up proposals from the Finnish scientific community. The drafted paper is also in line with the European Union and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

In the paper UNIFI proposes:

A) Key principles of a successful mission-oriented approach, and

B) Missions and research priorities contributing to the achievement of the overall goal.
