The Academy of Finland takes care of the review of the scientific quality of sport science project applications submitted to the Finnish Ministry of Education, Science and Culture. The Ministry makes the funding decisions and takes care of the payment of funds. The review cooperation concerns new applications for funding. Applications are submitted in the Academy’s online services. We will forward the review reports to the Ministry.

The review of applications follows the Academy’s practices and criteria. We mainly use foreign experts as reviewers.

We ask you to submit your application in English to facilitate international peer review and ensure an equal and smooth processing of applications. In addition to scientific quality, the review will focus on how the applications meet the policy lines indicated in the Ministry’s application guidelines. This aspect will be assessed by the National Sports Council, which will then submit its statement to the Ministry.

The Ministry will make the funding decisions in spring 2020. The funding period can start as early as 1 January 2020. Due to the Ministry’s decision schedule, however, the recommended start date is 1 April 2020.

Before you log in to the online services (SARA) to fill in the application, make sure to carefully read the call text below as well as the Ministry’s call text.
