Analysis, assessment and research projects

The analysis, assessment and research activities generate information that supports decision making, working practices and management by knowledge. The Government's annual plan for analysis, assessment and research serves to steer the activities.

The maximum duration of the projects implemented under the plan is 36 months and they are expected to be transparent and the outcomes to be as widely applicable as possible.  The studies and research projects are put out to open tender. The selection criteria for the projects are relevance, impact, applicability, quality and feasibility.

New projects are selected to be launched annually. Public descriptions of the projects will be published in Finnish.
