BiGGAR Economics was commissioned by UNIFI to undertake a study that considered the economic impact of the universities sector in Finland. This study found that the Finnish Universities generated €14.2 billion GVA for the Finnish economy and supported 136,000 jobs. This corresponds to 6.6% of Finnish economic output and 5.5% of employment in Finland.
A euro invested in the Finnish universities produces, on average, 5.26 euros in return for the Finnish economy.
The results were presented in Helsinki on Tuesday 13th June.
