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, Finpro, Tekes, 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. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see: services.team.finland.fi.

Ireland and Finland are similar in many ways. Both countries are very open economies, both put a lot of emphasis on research, development and innovation, both Ireland and Finland are EU member states of a similar size and both are members of the euro zone. Bearing all these similarities in mind it comes as no surprise that Finland and Ireland do a lot of cooperation in a very wide range of fields, bilaterally, in the context of the EU as well as internationally.
The Team Finland network in Ireland aims to use this wide range of similarities in order to promote business relations and cooperation between Finland and Ireland. We can learn a lot from each other by further improving information flow between individuals, companies, institutions and other stakeholders. We believe that by sharing experiences and ideas we will be able to create new business opportunities and cultural exchange to the benefit of both Ireland and Finland. The coordination group of Team Finland in Ireland consists of representatives from the Embassy, the Finland Trade Center in London, the Finnish Institute in London, the Finnish Business Club in Ireland, the Irish Finnish Society as well as the Honorary Consul General in Dublin.
