Electronic Services

CEMAT provides online information and reports on economies and  business environments in transition.

CEMAT Talousnäkymät(in Finnish), CEMAT Economic prospects, is a web publication series that provides up-to-date overviews of the economic development of Russia and China from the perspective of Finnish enterprises. In 2010 the reports on the economic development of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, and in 2012 reports on Latvia and Lithuania, were also published. The site is provided by the Center for Markets in Transition (CEMAT) at the Aalto University School of Business. The overviews combine data from economic forecasts of various research institutes, barometers that map the expectations of enterprises, and CEMAT’s partner companies’ economic outlook of the target countries. On this basis, the overviews analyze how economic prospects are reflected in the business possibilities of Finnish companies in the target countries.

Economic Monitoring of Northwest Russia was launched in 2000 with the aim to provide regular, comprehensive and systematic reporting on the socio-economic development in the region. The monitoring covers today six Northwest Russian regions: The City of St Petersburg, Leningrad, Kaliningrad, Murmansk and Novgorod provinces, and the Republic of Karelia.

Finrusresearch - Tutkittua Venäjä-tietoa yrityksille (in Finnish) is provided jointly by three partners: Working Group for Social Sciences under the Finnish-Russian Commission for Scientific and Technological Cooperation (financed by the Academy of Finland), the Center for Markets in Transition (CEMAT) at the Aalto University School of Business and the Small Business Center at the Aalto University School of Business. Our aim is to support exchange of information between Finnish universities and research institutes conducting research on Russia, and Finnish companies oriented towards the Russian market.
