ICOS Finland has been established by the three national partners  University of Helsinki (UH), Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI), and University of Eastern Finland (UEF)  forming the ICOS Finland management board. The steering committee consists of the management board together with the operating ministries (Ministry of Education and Culture, and Ministry of Transport and Communications). Task groups take care of specific technical details of the national network. ICOS Finland coordination office in Helsinki helps the management board in their work, organises meetings and liaises with the stakeholders and other ICOS components.
