2021 Technovation Girls Armenia competition is sponsored by the Ministry of foreign affairs of Finland.
The world is changing rapidly, so how can we surmount the challenges of the future? We must be able to broaden our perspective. In Finland, as in many other countries, methods and systems have been created to promote innovations and capitalize on them. Success is not founded on science or technical inventions alone, however, although they are a great help.
At the beginning of the 1990s, people started talking about social innovations – innovations that cannot be patented – as the foundation of the Finnish welfare state. This foundation has also been a prerequisite for all Finnish technological innovations.
