The Academy of Finland has two partners in the United States: the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Academy and the American funders have agreed to promote Finnish-American research collaboration in 2020–2024. Cooperation will be strengthened by funding research projects between American and Finnish parties in areas represented by the research flagships included in the Academy’s Finnish Flagship Programme.
