September 2014 call online now

(21 July 2014)

The Academy of Finland’s September 2014 call for applications is now available online. The Finnish-language version was published earlier in July. Applications can be submitted in the online services as of Monday 1 September. The deadline is Wednesday 24 September at 16.15. The deadlines for international calls may differ from the Academy’s main deadline. Please check the deadline in the call text.

Based on feedback received from international reviewers, we have revised the research plan guidelines. The research plan is the most important appendix to the application. We also want to emphasise the importance of writing a popular and accessible project description.

With the September 2014 call comes a number of new guidelines and practices. The Academy encourages researchers to publish open access and make their data available. From now on, the funding for research projects can also be used to cover costs of open access publishing. We will also change the calculation of mobility allowances. Another change is the extension of the funding period for clinical researchers, from three to four years. Read more about the changes here: September 2014 call: What’s new?.
