The Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland sets out that funding will be allocated to local research infrastructures. The Academy of Finland has not previously allocated funding to local research infrastructures. Therefore, the infrastructures on the national RI roadmap (the whole RI project described in the roadmap application) and the infrastructures that received funding in the FIRI 2021 call are not eligible to apply in the present call.

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.

Read the full call text on this page. Also read all the FIRI guidelines that are available on the Academy’s website.
