The Academy of Finland promotes European research cooperation and the building of the European Research Area (ERA) in two main ways. Firstly, our experts act as Finland’s representatives on committees of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation and advise and support applicants seeking funding from the programme. These tasks are closely coordinated with Finnish ministries and Business Finland. Secondly, we sponsor partnerships with the EU and European funding agencies and market them to researchers through thematic ERA-NET and JPI calls. However, the new Horizon Europe framework programme will transform European research partnerships.

We also coordinate the Finnish Liaison Office for EU R&D (FiLi) with Business Finland in Brussels. FiLi works in close cooperation with the European Commission as well as European and Finnish researchers in Brussels.
