The EIB has worked with Finland since 1994. We improved sections of the E18 east-west road link in the south and modernised the railway line between Turku, Helsinki and the Russian border. We invested in education, health, sustainable transport and many small businesses. We modernised Aalto University and the Kuopio University Hospital, and we supported a 15-kilometre tramline in Tampere. We helped the wave energy company AW-Energy improve its technology.
