The Academy reformed its application services during the April 2019 call. The call texts will be published on the website according to funding instrument. You can find additional information on the reform in the April call press release.
We will prepare for reformations in the online services (SARA) during the summer. The aim is to support the applicants in the application process. The research plan will include more space for the research description. We will update the information on reformations at www.aka.fi/whatsnew.
The Academy of Finland is committed to promoting the principles and practice of open science to improve the quality, responsibility, and social impact of science. The Academy requires that Academy-funded researchers publish their work following the principles of open access. We also urge them to store their research data and make them available through archives or storage services that are important in their own disciplines.
As in previous years, the Academy will organise the Ask & Apply roadshow together with universities and other research organisations to support the applicants. Session dates and more information on the destinations will be published by the beginning of August.
