The Chapter explores how building product manufacturers have perceived the innovation context in Finland since the 1960s when many modern construction technologies started to emerge. The analysis is based on qualitative data from a project considering the knowledge interaction between product manufacturers and research organisations. It could be concluded that the Finnish construction sector including its related manufacturing and service sectors has been a pioneer in adopting environmental and sustainability concepts and developing new approaches thanks to multidiscipline and forwardlooking interaction between various stakeholders.
