This chapter first discusses research and development in general, and then turns to the rapid growth of the information and communication technology (ICT) industry. It considers the phenomenal success of the Nokia Group and the major role it played in the Finnish growth process of the 1990s. However, the Finnish story is not only about Nokia; the chapter looks at the development and role of the larger Finnish ICT industry both over time and in comparison with some other countries.

Keywords:   research and development, ICT, Finland, Nokia Group, economic growth
