Abstract - Electromagnetics at Tampere University of Technology hosts the only
group in Finland doing research in the field of large scale superconducting
applications. Over the past 20 years the emphasis of the Group of Superconducting
Power Applications has included projects on superconducting magnetic energy storage, HTS motor, deflection magnet, superconducting cable, separator and induction heater. Research has been conducted also on AC losses in HTS conductors and stability of LTS, HTS and MgB2 conductors and coils. In total, these studies culminated in ten Ph.D. theses, out of which five only recently. Here, we review these five Ph.D. theses, and shortly introduce other Finnish superconductivity-related activity.  An appendix characterizes briefly the doctoral study system in Finland.

 Keywords - Environmental impacts of superconductivity, magnetometer, electromagnetic
design of power cables, stability of MgB2, modelling of stress and strain
