Rector Jari Niemelä voiced a direct request to decision makers in his opening address of the academic year: "we need to develop a shared understanding of science, education and learning as areas in which we as a nation invest regardless of economic cycles. We need not only sufficient resources, but also the opportunity to engage in long-term development based on the specific needs of science and research."
