Erroneous decision notifications from Academy of Finland

15 Mar 2021

On Monday 15 March 2021, the Academy of Finland sent out erroneous decision notifications. The notifications stated that the Academy’s Research Council for Culture and Society had made decisions on a number of Academy Research Fellow applications submitted to the September 2020 call. This was a human error, and the processing of applications is still underway.

The Research Council for Culture and Society will make the decisions on Academy Research Fellow and Postdoctoral Researcher funding on 24 March and 10 May 2021. The Academy Project applications will be decided on 24 March and 26 May.

The error will not require any action from applicants.

We apologise for the error.
