The Academy of Finland has opened two new joint calls with its funding partners in the US, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The calls are aimed at supporting joint research projects between Finnish and American researchers in fields represented by the Finnish Flagships. The support for the research collaboration will be implemented under the Academy’s Finnish Flagship Programme and the research, development and innovation programme ICT 2023.
The Academy has reserved a total of up to 5 million euros for supporting Finnish collaboration partners in 2022.
The joint calls will be carried out using a previously tested model under which the actual application is submitted to the US funder. However, the call process has been improved based on feedback received from the previous calls.
An information session about the calls will be organised on 7 December 2021 at 14.00–15.00. The replays will be available on the Academy’s website for two weeks. Read more and sign up.
