Why Finland is one of the leading countries for innovative technologies?

Profit above people and economy above environment? May be somewhere, but never in Finland. The ultimate priority of Finns is the environment-friendly life and work styles.

Not very talkative by nature, Finns investigate and put into practice the most innovative energy efficient solutions in projects for living, working, studying, doing sports and providing services for modern busy lifestyle consumer.

Finns heat new buildings by geothermal energy, install heat recovery ventilation and HVAC ducts in walls and slabs. Scandinavian designers give special attention to smart layout and functional zoning in apartments and offices to make every square meter work for the user.  

Participants will see:

  • Facilities in use and construction sites on different stages
  • Finnish style production with rational logistics and modern management tools.
