Societal impact as the focus of the strategy
In line with its vision, the National Defence University advances the overall security of the nation and the stability of society through its research and expertise in military sciences.
The aim of the National Defence University is to develop as a respected, trusted and widely networked expert in military theory of the future, operating at the forefront of military sciences and the art of war and excelling through learning, research and leadership.
The pillars of societal interaction include key partnerships with other higher education institutions both in Finland and abroad and cooperation in international networks to deepen the resources available for research.
The National Defence University also plays a key role in the provision of expertise to the media both in the traditional media and in online contents.
Our impact report for the year 2022 gives an eye-opening overview of what operating at the forefront of military sciences and the art of war concretely means from the point of view of teaching, research as well as responsibility and interaction at the NDU.
