The Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering of the Academy of Finland, the Swedish Research Council Formas, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland, the Ministry of the Environment of Finland and the Walter Ahlström Foundation jointly open a targeted call for applications focusing on new and sustainable value chains from forest raw material.

The aim of the call is to generate new breakthroughs and knowledge and to strengthen and develop long-term bilateral research collaboration between Finland and Sweden. The projects must be of high scientific quality, follow the principles of responsible science and over the short or long term be of benefit to society. The call aims also to support early-career researchers as consortium leaders.

In addition to a doctoral degree, the principal investigator (PI) of the proposed project must also have other significant scientific merits. Usually the PI is a researcher at least at the docent level (adjunct professor). In addition to this, the consortium leader must have no more than ten years since their first doctorate; see ‘Who can apply’ for more details.

The call’s funding budget has been set at 3 million euros. Finland and Sweden jointly fund the call with equal amounts.

Before you fill in your application in the online services (SARA), carefully read the call text with Appendices and the ‘Read more’ section, especially the funding terms and conditions of each funder in Appendix A (Finland) and Appendix B (Sweden). If the call text and the funding terms and conditions conflict, the terms and conditions of the corresponding funder should always be considered primary.
