Calculation of grants to foreign researchers working in Finland


This table is used both for applications for funding of research costs of projects and researchers and in the funding opportunity Funding for international researcher mobility based on bilateral agreements (Mobility to Finland).

Short-term visits:

Grants with compensation for accommodation €80–185/day (incl. personal grant €39 and maximum compensation for accommodation €147)

 

Visits longer than one month, including compensation for accommodation:

Master’s degree or equivalent           1,600–1,800 euros/month

PhD or equivalent                              1,800–2,500 euros/month

A particularly outstanding visiting professor may be awarded a larger grant than indicated above.

The following guidelines apply to the 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 working in Finland. While working in Finland, they must have an employment relationship to the site of research.
  • The grants are applied for in the Academy’s online services under Other costs. Travel costs are entered under Travel costs.

The following guidelines apply to the 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 grant sums take into account the grantee’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.
