Benefits and value of information services: Case Finnish Meteorological Institute

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsProfessional

    Abstract

    The benefits of meteorological information services have been studied widely, but a coherent view of the impacts of the services has been ambigous. Met-information services must be first seen as a service with potential positive impacts on the societies' functions and only after that will the services be regarded for what they are in fact worth. This paper looks into the value of the services for the society in addition to the methodological contribution, which is also present. The Finnish Meteorological Institute's services represent the empirical case. It seems evident that the value of information will play an increasing role when societies grow more and more information intensive. The results of the empirical case were explicit. The total value of benefits, generated each year by the Institute's services, exceeded the annual budget of the Institute many times over.
