According to the new Finnish Government Programme, Finland wants to be a pioneer in terms of real-time economy. The Government Programme states that authorities’ investments in e-services lay a foundation for new innovations from companies and, ideally, decrease the companies’ costs.
The Government Programme was submitted to Parliament on 6 June 2019.
The Nordic Smart Government project (NSG) has the same aim, and expands the government’s goals to a cross-Nordic level. The purpose is to automatise the flow of financial information between companies in the Nordics.
As part of the NSG project, a solution-oriented workshop (“Hackathon weekend") is organised in Finland in November in cooperation with Aalto University and Accenture.
