Academy of Finland April 2017 call text out now

8 Mar 2017

The Academy of Finland’s April 2017 call for applications is now available in Finnish and in English on the Academy’s website. The Swedish-language version will be published later in March.

The funding schemes that will open for application in April include funding for research posts as Academy Professor and two Academy Programmes: Radiation Detectors for Health, Safety and Security (RADDESS) and Health from Science (TERVA).

Also included in the call are funding from the ICT 2023 programme under three themes and funding to NSF Graduate Fellows for research in Finland.

Funding to be provided to up to 15 new Academy Professors

The funding for a research post as Academy Professor is intended for internationally leading-edge researchers and recognised experts in their field who are expected to have great scientific impact in the scientific community and in society at large. The aim of the present call is to provide funding to up to 15 new Academy Professors.

The call has two stages. A new practice adopted as of this call is that Academy Professor applications will go through an international peer review process both at the first and the second call stage. The funding decisions on new Academy Professors will be made in June 2018.

Specifications added to research-ethical practices and mobility reporting

The Academy has further elaborated its research-ethical policies. The Academy will not process a funding application if the applicant has been found guilty of research misconduct in the three years preceding the year of the call.

Also as of the April 2017 call, applicants must enter their previous mobility periods in their applications in accordance with the limit set in the data collection on universities applied by the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. Only visits of at least five working days in total count as a previous mobility period. The same limit also applies when reporting on funded projects.

Applications can be submitted in the Academy’s online services as of Monday 3 April. The call closes on Wednesday 26 April at 16.15 local Finnish time.
