The following guidelines apply to funding in research projects:

  • Grants can be awarded to non-EU researchers for a maximum of one year’s research spell in Finland. Grants are not paid to EU citizens. While working in Finland, they must have an employment relationship.
  • Grants are applied for on the Academy’s online form under Other costs. Travel costs are entered under Travel costs.

The following guidelines apply to funding for Mobility to Finland:

  • Grants can be awarded to non-EU researchers for a maximum of one year’s research spell in Finland.
  • Travel costs are entered under Travel costs.

The grants awarded take into account the grant recipient’s obligation to take out pension, accident and life insurance. For more information, see Grant and scholarship recipients on the Farmers’ Social Insurance Institution’s website.

We recommend that the grantee and the site of research consult the tax administration concerning any tax consequences possibly arising from the payment of the grant.
