The Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee (FIRI Committee) has granted roadmap status to 29 research infrastructures. Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure FINMARI is one of them. Finnish Marine Research Infrastructure (FINMARI) combines all major components of the Finnish marine research community. It is a distributed infrastructure network of field stations, research vessels, gliders, laboratory facilities, ferryboxes, fixed measurement platforms, profiling buoys and multiple autonomous platforms.
FINMARI is coordinated by the Marine Research Centre of Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE), and it allies the research infrastructure of four Finnish research institutes (Finnish Environment Institute, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Geological Survey of Finland, Natural Resources Institute Finland) and major field stations of the universities of Helsinki, Turku and Åbo Academi. FINMARI provides a unique contact point to observational and experimental Finnish marine research facilities. FINMARI joint infrastructure development plan is based on addressing the multiscale variability of the marine environment, through synergetic integration of the research foci and RI competence profiles of the partnership.
The roadmap for national research infrastructures in Finland is a list of strategically significant research infrastructure services needed over the next 10–15 years in the Finnish research, development and innovation system.The selected infrastructures will be included in the National Roadmap for research infrastructures covering the years 2021–2024.
