UNICEF: establishment of innovation hubs in Finland

Description

The project supports the establishment of UNICEF's innovation activities in Finland as part of restructuring UNICEF’s global innovation activities. UNICEF has proposed to establish two thematic innovation hubs in Finland: Global Learning Innovation Hub and Global Innovative Finance Hub. The proposal is based on Finland’s response to UNICEF’s request for expressions of interest, which was launched in early 2021. These hubs will work to strengthen the quality and impact of UNICEF's innovation activities by providing a platform for collaboration and scaling up promising innovations for children and youth. The project supports the preparation process and provides resources for initiating and operating UNICEF's innovation activities in Finland.
