Research cooperation and open science

Research projects involve cooperation across organisational boundaries as well as with partners in Finland and other countries. VATT’s researchers visit universities and research institutes, and the cooperation partners of VATT researchers visit VATT either as presenters at seminars or on longer researcher stays. From 2017 international researchers involved in more extensive cooperation with VATT have been invited to join the VATT Affiliated Researcher Network.

An important strategic partner in the Economicum Campus is the new Helsinki Graduate School of Economics. Bringing together the economics departments of Aalto University, Hanken School of Economics and the University of Helsinki, it represents a major skills cluster assuring education for researchers in the field and providing a lively research environment for international visiting researchers.

VATT also belongs to EconPol Europe – the European Network for Economic and Fiscal Policy Research, comprising nine European economics research institutes and universities. VATT also collaborates closely in cross-disciplinary STN projects with universities and other research institutes.
