Column: Safety ensures trust 

"At the time of writing this text, the corona situation in Finland is getting worse and new restrictions are underway. There is also the light-deprived November bringing us down. In addition to the virus, we are fighting apathy and an uncertain future. These times emphasise the importance of strengthening the psychological feelings of safety and trust. Safety creates trust, and trust begets safety. And this emotional state is something we must look after in our society with special vigilance," writes Jarno Limnéll.

Open and synthetic data:
New opportunities 
for industry

Latvia and Finland are aiming at being Champions in the area of open data. Indeed, Latvia is leading in the Baltic region while Finland is excelling in the Nordic region.

As public sector is creating large amounts of data from surveys, digital maps, and forestry related information, and as researchers supplement them with synthetic datasets, new data-drived solutions and business models are expected to emerge.
