CSC has an important role as an instrument for steering and developing the Ministry of Education and Culture's education, science and cultural policy. We are owned by the Finnish state (70% shareholding) and higher education institutions (30% shareholding).
Our owners determine the purpose of the enterprise and a majority of our services are aimed at meeting our owners' needs. Our primary customers are the Ministry of Education and Culture and organizations in the field, higher education institutions (universities and universities of applied sciences), research institutes and public administration.
Our owners are able to purchase our services without bidding and we provide services to our owners for no profit. The company's success is measured in terms of how much value it generates for the owners.
