The Academy of Finland provides funding for the acquisition, establishment, strengthening and upgrading of nationally significant research infrastructures that advance scientific research. The funding, known as FIRI funding, is intended to cover investment costs in the construction phase of the research infrastructure, such as the acquisition of equipment and systems and the formation of services. The funding may also be applied for to significantly upgrade an existing research infrastructure.

Two calls will open in April 2023: a call for roadmap research infrastructures 2021–2024 and projects affiliated with international research infrastructures where Finland is a member (FIRI 2023: roadmap research infrastructures 2021–2024 and international memberships) and a call for research infrastructures not included in the roadmap (FIRI 2023: non-roadmap research infrastructures).

The Academy’s total funding budget for these two FIRI 2023 calls comes to at least 40 million euros.

Before you fill in your application in the online services (SARA), carefully read the call text and 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.
