TAF

Technology Academy Finland (TAF) awards the biennial Millennium Technology Prize and runs associated events and initiatives.

TAF’s agenda:

    • Voicing public debate on the significance of technology and promoting innovations for a better life
    • Providing a neutral collaboration forum for business, academia and governmental organizations
    • Encouraging young people to study and choose a career in technology

One of TAF’s strengths is the tripartite cooperation between industry, governmental organizations and the scientific community and its extensive network in all these sectors. The three sectors are also represented in the TAF Board and in the different committees.

TAF started operating under the name of the Finnish Technology Prize Foundation in 2003. In 2005, the name changed to the Millennium Prize Foundation. The name was changed to the Technology Academy Finland in 2008, and meanwhile the Finnish Technology Academy TTA and Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences in Finland STV incorporated.
