Nine researchers from Ukraine invited to Finland with funding from the Academy of Finland

7 Jul 2022

The Academy of Finland has granted 500,000 euros in funding to invite nine researchers from Ukraine to Finland. The invitees will work in Finnish research teams that have applied for the funding from the Academy. Most of the research organisations applied for two-year funding for the visits.

The Academy’s funding is intended for the invitees’ travel and living expenses in Finland. The funding is subject to the requirement that the researchers are prevented from working in Ukraine because of the Russian attack and need physical protection to carry out their research.

The funding is granted to the host organisations of the researchers in Finland who invited the researchers from Ukraine. The inviters undertake to assist the invitees in practical arrangements and in issues related to settling in Finland.
