The Research Council for Culture and Society decides on research funding within its own field. The Research Council hosts several different disciplines, and research within its scope of expertise is conducted at all Finnish universities. Both in the humanities and the social sciences, Academy funding is crucial to universities’ external funding.
The Research Council’s principal task is to support high-level basic research projects in its fields. The main aim is to strengthen humanities and social science research and take into account the special features of such research.
