Memberships in international research infrastructures give the Finnish science and business communities access to research infrastructure services that could not be provided by national means only. International research infrastructures are also a platform for international collaboration in research, development and innovation and a means to advance cooperation and engage in science diplomacy between countries.

The Academy of Finland is prepared to fund the membership fees of the international research infrastructures invited to this call with an estimated 4 million euros for a maximum of five years, from 2024 to 2028.

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.
