MTT Agrifood Research Finland is the country’s leading research institute in the fields of agricultural and food research and agricultural and environmental research. Our products include innovations and solutions relating to renewable natural resources. We carry out research across eight research programmes, which run through the entire organisation. This programme-based approach enables genuine multidisciplinary research, which is a requirement for efficient problem-solving.Operating under the auspices of the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, MTT employs around 850 people at 14 locations across Finland.
Our head office is located in Jokioinen, a one-and-a-half hour drive from Helsinki. In 2008 our total expenditure amounted to approximately 49 million, of which around one third was budget financing. The research programmes provide the framework for cooperation between research organisations. They also represent a channel to national and EU-level research programmes. The programmes form clearly-defined entities, making it easy to involve customers in their planning and use.The research programmes comprise a set of spearhead projects. They bring together research cooperation partners and the beneficiaries of research results, by involving them in the projects. Each research programme has a coordinator who is in charge of the results and responsible for the programme’s successful completion.
