Public description of project

If a project is granted funding, we will publish the project description on our website. The description is written by the applicant in connection with the drafting of the application. Finnish- or Swedish-speaking applicants write their descriptions in Finnish or Swedish. All applicants must also write a description in English. 

The public description is a way for the Academy and researchers to disseminate information on Academy-funded research. Consequently, it is important that the description be as clear and readable as possible – it should be accessible to a general audience.

The description must not exceed 1,000 characters.

It should cover the following information:

  • the topic of the research project and the rationale
  • the material used for the research and the research method on a general level (interviews, statistical data, archive materials or similar)
  • the site of research
  • the significance of the research and its objectives
  • any other interesting aspects
  • if relevant, a link to the researcher’s home page, if it contains more information
  • if relevant, a reference to previous publications that are readily available at public libraries or on the internet.

We will not edit project descriptions – it is the applicants themselves who are responsible for the content, clarity and style of the descriptions.
