Active research cooperation is an integral part of our research operations at the Finnish Centre for Pensions. We cooperate with other research and expert institutions and with universities. Our cooperation takes the form of joint projects, information sharing, research funding and hosting visiting researchers.  

Research data  

At the Finnish Centre for Pensions, we can extract research material from our registers for scientific research. We disclose the data in compliance with the principles of the Act on the Openness of Government Activities and the Data Protection Act. As a rule, we do not disclose register data for commercial purposes. The scientific research must be identified.  

Supplementary guidelines for the above general guideline (in Finnish):

Research funding

We annually fund or participate in the funding of a few research projects that are of interest in terms of assessing and improving the pension system.
