The Team Finland network promotes Finland and its interests abroad: the internationalisation of Finnish enterprises, investments in Finland, and the country brand. The Team Finland operating model brings together the key actors and services in these fields. The core of the network consists of the publicly funded organisations operating in these fields, such as the ministries, Finland’s network of diplomatic missions, Finpro, Tekes, national culture and science institutes, Finnvera, Finnfund, and the regional internationalisation services, built upon the ELY Centres.
The Team Finland network will help your enterprise become more international, grow, and succeed in the global market. For more information on services to companies seeking internationalisation, see: http://team.finland.fi/en/services.

The objectives of Team Finland in Serbia is to promote business opportunities in Serbia to Finnish companies by increasing awareness in Finland about the business possibilities that Serbia has to offer and by marketing Finnish know-how in Serbia. The objectives of Team Finland are the same in Montenegro and Macedonia, but demand-driven. The main focus of the activities is in Serbia.
In particular, Team Finland in Serbia supports and promotes Finnish companies' activities on the following sectors: energy, forestry, cleantech, biomass, waste management and district heating. The education, health and mining sectors also offer some interesting opportunities for Finnish companies.
Finnish companies' high level of expertise and technological know-how are not yet well-known in Serbia, but there is demand for environmentally friendly and innovative solutions that Finland and Finnish companies have to offer.
The Embassy of Finland in Belgrade works closely with other Team Finland actors and aims to promote a positive image of Finland by organising promotion events and visits. The goal is also to raise awareness and knowledge about Finland in Serbia through Embassy's Facebook and Internet sites. The Embassy supports cooperation between Finnish and Serbian actors by acting as a bridge-builder and source of contact between parties involved. The Embassy also shares information to main target groups.
Team Finland partners in Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia are, in addition to the Embassy, Finpro in Budapest, with a strong Serbian know-how, and Finnagora, Culture and Science Institute in Hungary.
