Support network for cultural exports
Expertise in cultural export is found not only in each field of art but also centrally at art information centres, which disseminate information in Finland and promote international exchanges in their fields.
Finland has twelve cultural and four scientific institutes in different parts of the world. They have wide networks in their target countries.
The Finnish embassies and missions abroad have a total of 70 professionals who work under the Department for Communication and Culture of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
Finpro has 40 units all over the world to promote Finnish exports, including cultural exports.
One aim in the support of cultural export is to find project funding and cooperation partners for the commercialisation and promotion of cultural projects.
