At organisation level, the Research Council of Finland consists of three research councils, the Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee, the Strategic Research Council and the Administration Office.
General Research Council policies and objectives are decided by the Board, which also allocates research appropriations to the research councils and the Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee.
The Administration Office prepares and implements decisions made by the Board, research councils, the Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee, the Strategic Research Council, subcommittees and the Research Council’s president, and signs the agreements resulting from the decisions.
The Administration Office is headed by a president and two vice presidents. The VP for administration is responsible for administrative operations and development. The VP for research is responsible for science policy planning and research funding development.
With a staff of some 145, the Administration Office sees to our administration, does all the necessary groundwork for official decision-making by our Board and research councils, and executes their decisions. Staff at the Administration Office also prepare science policy surveys and plans and participate in several Finnish and international working groups.
