The Academy of Finland has agreements on cooperation with two research funding organisations in India: the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) and the Department of Science and Technology (DST). The agreements do not cover research fields within the social sciences and humanities.
Under the mobility agreements, the Academy funds the work of Finnish researchers in India and the work of Indian researchers in Finland. The mobility funding is open for application in September.
Within the framework of EU cooperation, the Academy has participated in joint calls launched by New Indigo ERA-NET (2009–2013) and Inno INDIGO (2013–2016) as well as in the Equip project (2014–2017), which promoted, among other things, the networking of European and Indian researchers and funders in the social sciences and humanities.
