Support for entering new Global Markets


There is a huge global potential for northern services and products in the field of education export. The multisectoral offering of the Finnish education system and various other fields creating high quality learning environments are widely valued. The products supporting learning include e.g. learning materials, educational games, software products, school buildings and infrastructure, educational concepts and consulting services. Today, these services are offered by companies, schools as well as other organizations. Besides knowledge and expertise in marketing and sales, entering the global markets also requires strong networking skills.
