Health from Science (also known as TERVA) is an Academy Programme aimed at encouraging Finnish researchers to seek bold, new research initiatives that can solve health issues related to major public health diseases. The programme’s first call for applications invited high-risk research designs where the risks were motivated in terms of potentially significant effects on the promotion of public health. The projects were required to involve open-minded approaches at the frontiers of knowledge.

This follow-up call is targeted at researchers who received funding from the first call. The aim of the call is to assess the progress made in the research projects, the practical implementation of the bold approaches and the scientific quality, novelty and impact of the research plan drawn up for the new period. The research projects that are the most successful in the review will be granted two years' continued funding.

At the core of the Academy of Finland’s activities is to provide funding to excellent scientific research. The research we fund is 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 your 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.
