The Academy of Finland has an agreement on funding cooperation with two Russian research funding agencies: the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) and the Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR). The cooperation with the RAS supports researcher mobility in all fields of research. The mobility funding is open for application in September. With the RFBR, the Academy mainly organises joint project calls with varying disciplines and topics. Information on open and future calls are provided in the call texts.
Since 2010, the Academy has been involved in the ERA.Net RUS project, which aims at strengthening R&D cooperation and creating a well-functioning research funding cooperation model between Russia and the European Research Area (ERA). So far, four wide-ranging multidisciplinary research funding calls have been organised within the framework of the project.
