The Academy’s April 2013 call for applications is now available online.

The Research Programme on the Future of Learning, Knowledge and Skills (TULOS) will be launched in April 2013. The research projects under the programme are aligned with 21st century knowledge and skills needs in education and at work as well as the needs of future societies and the future global world.

Within the thematic areas of the Research Programme on the Human Mind (MIND), funding is available for joint projects with Russian and Chinese researchers. Applications are also invited within a number of targeted international calls.

The FIRI 2013 call for research infrastructures will also open in April 2013. Within this call, the Academy provides funding for the acquisition, establishment or strengthening of nationally significant research infrastructures that promote scientific research. The aim is to upgrade the quality and accelerate the renewal, competitiveness and interdisciplinary approach of Finnish research. Another aim is to increase the appeal of Finnish research environments and to boost the national and international collaboration of Finnish universities, research teams and researchers.

The Finnish Advisory Board on Research Integrity, the Academy of Finland, Universities Finland UNIFI and the Rectors Conference for Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences (Arene) have prepared a new model for a researcher’s CV. Applicants for Academy funding are requested to draft their CVs in line with this model.
