Irish State Agencies
The Embassy works very closely with the four non-resident State Agencies covering Finland, actively seeking opportunities to foster links with businesses and individuals interested in business, investment and tourism opportunities in Ireland. We work closely together to promote Ireland from an economic and cultural perspective.
The Irish Food Board, known as Bord Bia, acts as a link between Irish food, drink and horticulture suppliers and existing and potential customers throughout the world. Finland is covered by the Bord Bia office in Stockholm.
Enterprise Ireland (EI) is the government organisation responsible for developing and growing Irish enterprises in world markets. It services the Nordic Region from its Stockholm Office.
Ireland's inward investment promotion agency, IDA Ireland (Industrial Development Agency) is responsible for attracting and developing foreign investment. IDA Ireland's Frankfurt office covers the Finnish market.
Tourism Ireland markets the island of Ireland as a holiday destination overseas. It devises and implements world-class marketing programmes and provides industry partners with opportunities to market their own products and services alongside Tourism Ireland overseas. It covers Finland from its Copenhagen office.
Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) invests in academic research that is most likely to generate new knowledge, leading-edge technologies and competitive enterprises in science and engineering. As well as promoting Ireland's achievements around the world, SFI supports co-operation between education, government, and industry.
