Instructions on how to apply for a change in the project

Even in a well-planned project there may be a need to appoint a new person in charge, more time is required or the costs have exceeded the budget. For most project changes, you will need advance consent from Business Finland, but in some cases a notification will suffice. Discuss significant changes in large projects with your contact person in advance.
