Finland is inviting India’s tech talent to work and hone up skills, under its ‘Find your Finnish Future’ campaign. Big tech companies such as Nokia, IQM Quantum Computers are among twenty corporates inviting talented tech candidates to apply for more than 60 new positions, as part of the campaign, which was launched on 19 April, as stated by Finnish government organisation, Business Finland.

Last month, India and Finland launched an elaborate plan for setting up the Indo-Finnish Virtual Network Centre on quantum computing. The Finland India Quantum network (Fin-Q n) is a joint effort by the Department of Science and Technology on the Indian side and TEM (Ministry for Employment and Economic Affairs) on the Finnish side.

The Business Finland India is working out a common set up for quantum computing experts to pool in ideas and work together for establishing solid grounds for quantum computing.

Last week, Tech Mahindra's research and development (R&D) arm, Makers Lab, has set up a quantum center of excellence (CoE), called QNxT, in Helsinki, Finland to tap into the country’s expertise in quantum computing and speed up commercial use of quantum computers globally. 

Makers Lab will also set up quantum centres at home, in Pune and Hyderabad, to explore the application in different sectors, like telecom, 5G, energy, and healthcare. The company said that it will start the process by putting together a team of over 200 quantum machine learning experts and five research fellows.

Paavo Virkkunen, Executive Director at Business Finland, said, “Finland is committed to bringing talented people, innovations, technology, and businesses together to generate opportunities and prosperity through sustainable growth globally.

According to a report by the World Economic Forum, the worldwide labour skills shortage is predicted to reach 4.3 million workers and roughly $450 billion in unrealized output by 2030 — and that’s in the technology, media and telecommunications sector alone.

India will be the only country in the world to have an overall talent surplus — amounting to about 250 million workers, according to estimates by online consultancy platform consultancy.in.
