  • In joint calls with Japan, China and Germany, the deadlines of international funding agencies may expire earlier than in Finland.

With this funding opportunity, the Academy of Finland promotes the international interaction of Finnish researchers as well as the internationalisation of Finnish research environments.

The mobility funding call is implemented with the following countries India, Japan, China, (incl. Taiwan), Germany and Russia. Funding can be applied for mobility from or to Finland. For some countries, funding is granted only in one direction.

At the core of the Academy of Finland’s activities is to provide funding for excellent scientific research. The research we fund is also expected to have high scientific and social impact. The results of Academy-funded projects must be made public and they must be produced following good scientific practice. In other words, the research must be ethical, follow the principles of sustainable development and make its results, material and data openly accessible. Equality and non-discrimination must also be considered.

Before you fill in the application in the online services (SARA), carefully read the call text and the ‘Read more’ section, especially the funding terms and conditions.

If the call text and the funding terms and conditions conflict, the terms and conditions should always be considered primary. If the translated English or Swedish version of the call text is in conflict with the Finnish call text, the Finnish version should always be considered primary.
