Health from Science (TERVA) 2018–2020


The Health from Science (TERVA) Academy Programme is aimed at encouraging researchers to seek bold, new research initiatives that can solve health issues related to major public health diseases. There are still a number of unsolved questions concerning a great many diseases that cause a major burden on quality of life, society and the economy. From the viewpoint of public health, significant breakthroughs often emerge from unexpected results that are firmly based on high-quality basic research and risk-taking.

This Academy Programme highlights the importance of scientific research in solving public health challenges. Apart from science renewal and high impact, the programme will also aim at fostering new kinds of collaborations between funding agencies and foundations that support research into diseases. The aim of the cooperation is to achieve a more extensive funding base.

The foundations involved in the programme:

  • the Finnish Brain Foundation
  • the Foundation for Pediatric Research
  • the Finnish Medical Foundation
  • the Cancer Foundation
