Academy of Finland: Guidelines for reporting on use of research infrastructure funding

A databank of Finland’s research infrastructures is available at The databank provides information to researchers, research infrastructure service providers and funding agencies. It is a service that aims to promote sharing and openness by describing and showcasing research infrastructures and their services in a unified manner.

Research infrastructures refer to a reserve of research facilities, equipment, information networks, databases, materials and services enabling research and development at various stages of innovation.

Research infrastructures may be based at a single location (single-sited), scattered across numerous sites and organisations (distributed), or provided via a virtual platform (virtual). They can also form mutually complementary wholes and networks. Europe hosts several large-scale research infrastructures that are open to collaborative use across national boundaries.

The Academy of Finland provides funding for the acquisition, establishment or upgrading of nationally important research infrastructures that promote scientific research in Finland.
