The Research Council for Health decides on research funding within its own field, including medicine, biomedicine and public health. Finnish health research has deservedly made its mark internationally, being versatile and scientifically of a very high quality. It also has impact by, for example, promoting good health, wellbeing and functional capacity, and by benefiting society at large.
The Research Council aims at advancing health research and increasing the international competitiveness of the research by supporting not only excellent research but also innovative and high-risk research. The Research Council wants to do its part in improving researcher training and research infrastructures in the field and in increasing the exposure of health research across society. In addition, the Research Council pays special attention to improving the framework conditions for research into clinical medicine.
