The Academy of Finland and the Strategic Research Council (SRC) invite proposals for new strategic research themes and Academy Programmes for the year 2019. The themes and topics should be of a greater scope than those addressed in individual research projects and designed to respond to needs of scientific and societal renewal.
Academy Programmes are research programmes funded by the Academy of Finland. They are science-driven, thematic and target-oriented bodies of research projects that are aimed at supporting scientific regeneration in a specific field, for example through new research topics, new methods and new approaches, and at increasing scientific and societal impact. Read more about ongoing or planned Academy Programmes.
The Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland runs funding programmes to support high-quality scientific research that has great societal impact. Strategic research is research that supports evidence-based policy and seeks solutions to grand societal challenges. An important element of such research is active and ongoing collaboration between those who produce new knowledge and those who use it. The SRC’s programmes consist of extensive and multidisciplinary research consortia. Read more about ongoing or planned strategic research themes.

How the proposals are processed and used
The Academy and the SRC will put the proposals to good use in preparing new Academy Programmes and strategic research themes. The proposals received will also support future work to plan themes and programmes. The submitted proposals will be posted on the Academy’s website without personal or organisational identifiers.
The survey data will be kept at the Academy for possible reuse. If possible, the data will also be stored at the Finnish Social Science Data Archive (FSD) for research and teaching purposes. All data archived at the FSD will be anonymised.
The Academy of Finland reserves the right to edit and/or discard proposals.
