Organisation: five research programs

The strategic guidelines and policies for Etla’s operations are determined by the board, which assembles 4-5 times a year. The board has 8-10 members, including both prominent representatives of industry and commerce and renowned persons with a strong background in research. Carl Haglund is the chairman of the board.

Etla’s overall operations are lead by the managing director, Vesa Vihriälä since 2012.

Etla has been organized into 5 research groups based on research themes as well as joint support functions. Etla has two subsidiaries: Etlatieto Oy for selected project research and Taloustutkimus Oy, a publisher.

Etla has invited prestigious external researchers contributing to research projects as Etla Senior Fellows.

Etla has extensive regular and project-specific co-operation with both domestic and foreign research institutes and individual researchers, including researchers in other fields of science.

The institute is a member of AIECE, the Association of European Forecasting Institutes, ENEPRI, the European Network of Economic Policy Research Institutes, and EUROFRAME, the European Forecasting Research Association for the Macro-Economy.
