Academy Research Fellows work on research plans that have been rated to be of a high scientific quality. They have built extensive research networks, and the funding allows them to develop their academic leadership skills and establish themselves as independent researchers in the international scientific community.

Successful applicants will have been engaged in successful scientific publication and collaboration since gaining their doctoral degree. Academy Research Fellow funding is not granted to persons who hold tenured professorships or other senior-level research posts at research organisations.

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 and follow the principles of responsible science.
