The Programme of the current Finnish Government includes a total of 30 million euros earmarked for the Academy of Finland within the Government’s strategic objective for knowledge and education. The objective concerns a key project aimed at strengthening the cooperation between higher education institutions and business life to bring innovations to the market.
The Board of the Academy of Finland adopted the principles for this key project funding in its meeting on 14 December 2015. The funding is set to open for application in connection with the Academy’s April 2016 call.
The funding is designed to support the strengthening of the quality and impact of research. It promotes competence-based growth, establishment of international centres of excellence and active collaboration with end-users and beneficiaries of research.
