Research Council for Culture and Society

The Research Council for Culture and Society grants funding to research within its remit. The Research Council represents many scientific disciplines, and research within its remit is carried out at all universities in Finland. In both the humanities and social sciences, funding granted by the Academy of Finland accounts for a considerable part of the universities’ external research funding.

The task of the Research Council for Culture and Society is to support high-quality scientific research in the fields it represents. The Research Council’s aim is to strengthen social sciences and humanities research and to take account of their specific features.
