The research, development and innovation programme ICT 2023 is jointly coordinated and funded by the Academy of Finland and Business Finland. The aim of the programme is to further improve scientific expertise in computer science and to promote the extensive application of ICT. The programme is based on the report 21 Paths to a Frictionless Finland by the ICT 2015 Working Group. Up to 10 million euros of the Academy’s budget authority for 2022 is earmarked to fund the ICT 2023 programme. Business Finland will not open a parallel call for business-related projects, but funding is available under this topic through Business Finland’s normal application process (see BF’s website).

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.

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.
