Academy of Finland to open six calls within Academy Programmes

22 Feb 2019

The Academy of Finland’s April 2019 call will include six calls implemented under the Academy Programmes funding scheme. Four of the calls involve new Academy Programmes., while two calls are supplements to existing programmes.

The aim of the Molecular Regulatory Networks of Life Academy Programme (R’Life, 2020–2023) is to broaden our understanding of the function and structure of the genome. The programme provides more information on how various mechanisms create links between different parts of the genome and gene networks and how these connections regulate the functions of life. The programme emphasises the adoption of the latest scientific methods. The Academy will launch two R’Life calls. The main call is open to consortia, while the additional call is targeted at researchers who have ongoing funding from the Academy of Finland. The programme’s total funding budget is 8 million euros.

The aim of the C1 Value Academy Programme (C1 Value 2020–2023) is to find solutions to reduce the amount of carbon compounds in the atmosphere and to utilise C1 compounds in the manufacture of industrial products and materials. The programme aims to contribute to slowing down climate change and help Finland achieve its climate goals. The funding budget has been set at 6 million euros.

The Academy Programme Climate Change and Health (CLIHE, 2020–2023) is designed to include research into the direct and indirect effects of climate change on human health and on maintaining and promoting health, and into developing new assessment techniques and examining the associated prerequisites and risks in the short and long term. The programme’s total funding budget is 8 million euros.

The Academy Programme Radiation Detectors for Health, Safety and Security (RADDESS, 2018–2022) will open a supplementary call targeted at research teams engaged in international cooperation. The international collaboration partner must be based in a country outside the EU. Funding will be granted to projects researching device-driven and functional radiation detection systems. The call’s funding budget comes to a maximum of 2 million euros.

The Digital Humanities Academy Programme (DIGIHUM, 2016–2022) will open a supplementary call for research projects that address novel methods and techniques in which digital technology and state-of-the-art computational science methods are used for collecting, managing and analysing data in humanities and social sciences research. The programme’s total funding budget is 3 million euros.

The calls will open on Tuesday, 2 April. The deadline for applications is Wednesday, 24 April 2019 at 16.15 local Finnish time. The full call texts will be published on 7 March.

The Academy will organise a webinar about the programme calls on 21 March at 13.00–15.00. The webinar link will be posted on www.aka.fi and the programmes’ websites.
