Public project description

If a project is granted funding, we will publish the description of the project on our website. The description is written by the applicant when drafting the application. Finnish- or Swedish-speaking applicants write their descriptions in Finnish or Swedish. All applicants must also write a description in English.

The public description helps the Academy of Finland and researchers to disseminate information on Academy-funded research. The description should therefore be as readable as possible and written for a nonscientific audience.

The description should be no more than 1000 characters long.

It should cover the following information:

  • the topic of the research and the rationale
  • the data and research methods to be used (interviews, statistical data, archive materials, etc.)
  • the site of research
  • the significance and objectives of the research from the perspective of society and science
  • any other interesting aspects
  • if relevant, a link to the researcher’s website, if it contains more information on the topic
  • if relevant, references to previous publications that are readily available at public libraries or on the internet.

We cannot edit project descriptions – it is the applicants who are responsible for the content, clarity and style of the descriptions. The funding recipient may edit the project description before they accept the funding.
