The Academy of Finland provides funding for the acquisition, establishment, strengthening and upgrading of nationally significant research infrastructures that promote scientific research. The funding, known as FIRI funding, is intended to cover investment costs in the construction phase of the research infrastructure, such as the acquisition of equipment and systems and the formation of services. The funding may also be applied for to significantly upgrade an existing research infrastructure. Two calls will open in April 2021: a call for roadmap research infrastructures 2021–2024 and projects affiliated with international research infrastructures where Finland is a member (FIRI 2021 research infrastructures on 2021–2024 roadmap and Finland’s international RI memberships) and a call for research infrastructures not included in the roadmap (FIRI 2021 non-roadmap research infrastructures). The Academy of Finland’s total funding budget for research infrastructures funded under these two calls is approximately 30 million euros.
