On this page you will find information on our progress and results, such as articles, blogs, policy briefs and impact stories.
Please note, that what you will find on this page is only part of what we have produced. A more comprehensive compilation can be found on our Finnish-language pages. We strive to gradually translate key outputs that are in Finnish to English.
Impact stories are yearly reports that describe the research and interaction carried out in SILE-project.
