New funding opportunities in the pipeline for Finnish-US research cooperation

18 Oct 2022

The Academy of Finland is set to open a new joint call with the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Academy is also planning a joint call with the National Science Foundation (NSF). As in the previous Finnish-US joint calls, these new calls will support research cooperation in in research fields represented by the Academy-funded Finnish Flagships.

The calls will be implemented under the Lead Agency mechanism. Under the mechanism, a single collaboration proposal will be submitted to a funding call organised by the NIH or the NSF. Proposers from Finland will submit a version of the proposal to the Academy as well.

Parties interested in funding opportunities for Finnish-US research cooperation are welcome to join a webinar organised the Academy of Finland and the FARIA network on 27 October 2022 at 16.15–17.15.

The webinar will also examine the special features of applying for the funding, as the joint calls differ significantly from the Academy of Finland’s normal application procedures.

The planned joint calls are based on the Academy’s versatile and ongoing collaboration with its US partners. Through this funding agency cooperation and the projects funded in the joint calls, the Academy aims to significantly promote the quality, impact and renewal of Finnish research.
