Team Finland in Greece

The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields.

The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Business Finland, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.

The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market.

Objectives of the Team Finland network in Greece

The objective of the Team Finland network is to use efficiently the existing resources by sharing information among the partners thus avoiding overlapping. We follow closely the situation in Greece and inform Finnish companies of the opportunities that may arise. That can include privatizations of Greek public companies or more general needs to modernize infrastructure or production technology.

Interesting sectors for Finnish companies in Greece would be e.g. ICT, renewable energy and waste treatment. Greece has an important shipping community that might offer opportunities to Finnish maritime know how. During the last years the most interest by Greeks has been expressed towards the Finnish education and innovation systems.
