International cooperation

The Scientific Council supports high-quality, researcher-initiated international cooperation and researcher mobility through the Academy Project and Academy Research Fellow funding schemes and through participation in strategically selected international joint calls. International cooperation forms a natural part of research in the fields of natural sciences and engineering. The Scientific Council’s international policy follows the Academy of Finland international policy for 2017–2021 (pdf) (particularly sections 1 and 3).

In promoting cooperation, the Scientific Council pays particular attention to the quality and added value of the cooperation. The Scientific Council also promotes international cooperation in the European Research Area, between the Nordic countries and with other international actors.

The Scientific Council monitors the effects and impact of its international activity annually by means of information obtained from research reports, separate studies and meetings with researchers. Read more about the meeting held on 15 November 2022 between the Scientific Council and the principal investigators funded under international joint calls, and see the presentations given at the meeting.

Information on upcoming calls is posted on the Research Council’s’s website and Twitter account.
