Researchers who have received funding from the Academy of Finland submit a research report in the online services no later than 1 June following the termination of the funding period.
Research reports are drafted on all Academy decisions on research grants. The reporting period is the same as the funding period in the decision. The guidelines on the Academy’s various funding opportunities are available in the online services.
Monitoring the impact of Academy funding has become increasingly important; the information is used when the Academy reports on its activities. Therefore it is essential that researchers complete their research reports in full. Data on publications, other deliverables and research visits are of key importance.
Research reports may be written in English, Finnish or Swedish. They cannot be submitted by email.
It is the responsibility of the principal investigator of the project to submit the report. The consortium PI must submit the scientific report on behalf of the whole consortium. Three times a year, the site of research must submit to the Academy an account of the use of the funding (by type of expenditure) and data on FTEs (staff according to the proportion of full-time hours they work), as part of the request for payment.
