  • Sitra's mission is to build a successful Finland for tomorrow. Sitra's responsibilities are regulated by law. Although the basic mission has remained unchanged throughout Sitra's history, the ways of implementing the mission have varied depending on how Sitra has best been able to promote Finland's success at the time.-> For example, Sitra investigated alternative power sources in connection with the 1970s energy crisis, and in the 1980s started to promote gene technology research and introduced venture capital investment in Finland. At the turn of the millennium, Sitra worked intensively, for example, on issues related to globalisation and the European Union. Currently, we are focusing on promoting the profound and extensive, that is to say, systemic changes in areas deemed to be important. Sitra was initially a substantial investment in the future on the part of the Finnish State. The original investment of FIM 100 million corresponds to EUR 150 million today. Sitra is independent and autonomous -> operations are funded with the profits of the endowment capital and returns from capital investments. In 2009, Sitra's budget was approximately EUR 54 million. Sitra is managed by MikkoKosonen, its President
