Espoo Mayor’s Innovation Competition is open to city personnel and Espoo-based companies. The deadline for applications is 24 May 2021. We are now offering all applicants the opportunity to receive personal sparring. 

Basic information about the competition, such as participation instructions, application completion instructions and evaluation criteria, is available at

If you would like to receive extra tips and sparring in addition to the instructions we have published online, we have now made available 25-minute personal sparring sessions, during which we will advise and help you with general issues related to preparing your application. 

The advice will be focused on the technical aspects of the application, in other words, we do not offer expertise in any particular field. We will provide you with ideas on how to further improve your application based on your questions. 

Only a limited number of sessions are available during the weeks 19 and 20, so book yours quickly by contacting Marianne Julkunen by email: or by phone: 040 5543606 

Once you have booked your sparring session, please send a brief summary of your innovation or potential innovation  by email  at the latest two days before the sparring session  for our experts to read. 

We will begin the sparring session with a pitch, or oral presentation, by the participant lasting up to five minutes, and then move on to the participant’s questions. 

In addition to the sparring sessions, we also offer advice by email. 

We encourage everyone to participate in the competition!
