The Academy of Finland actively cooperates with other Nordic research funding agencies. For example, we are closely involved in planning and implementing the activities of NordForsk.
We are also actively involved in the work of the Joint Committees of the Nordic Research Councils (NOS). The Joint Committee for Nordic Research Councils for the Humanities and the Social Sciences (NOS-HS), the Joint Committee Natural Science Research Councils (NOS-N), and the Joint Committee for Medical Research Councils (NOS-M) serve as Nordic cooperation and expert bodies within their respective fields.
Finland held the presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in 2016. The main themes of the Finnish presidency were water, nature and people. All events organised within the Academy Programmes of the Academy of Finland that are associated with the themes of the presidency were added to the events calendar of the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. The Academy of Finland also put together a leaflet describing the Academy Programmes concerned.
