The Academy of Finland is launching a call to provide funding for system-level research aimed at mitigating and adapting to climate change and for increasing the impact of the conducted research. This call will provide funding to research in which research consortia examine the whole of several subsystems and interdependencies between the systems. The research may also focus comprehensively on a single subsystem. At the same time, the research consortia shall also promote greater research impact in their projects. Based on these examinations, answers are anticipated as to what kinds of systemic changes are needed to safeguard future wellbeing and sustainable development.
The aim of the funding is to support high-quality research and to increase the societal impact emerging from the research. In addition, the funding will provide an opportunity to pool together research already carried out with other funding and, on the basis of this, to carry out new studies.
The aim of this funding call info is to provide basic information about the call (etc. objectives, application guidelines, review criteria) to the potential applicants.
The webinar will be held in English. Please note that the event will be recorded and is available for two weeks on the Academy of Finland website after the event.
