If your project is granted funding, we will publish a description of the project on our website. The description is the one you provided in the application. Finnish- or Swedish-speaking applicants write the descriptions in Finnish or Swedish. All applicants must also write a project description in English.
The project description helps the Research Council of Finland and researchers to communicate the funded research to a mainstream audience. The description should therefore be as readable as possible and written for a nonscientific audience.
We will use the project description in our communication about the research project. The description will also be stored at research.fi, a service that makes available information on scientific research conducted in Finland.
The maximum length of the description is 1,000 characters including spaces.
It should cover the following information:
- topic and rationale
- data and research methods to be used (interviews, statistical data, archive resources, etc.)
- site of research
- significance and objectives of the research from the perspectives of society and science
- any other interesting aspects
- if relevant, link to the researcher’s website, if it contains more information on the topic
- you can also include references to previous (open access) publications.
Please note that we do not edit project descriptions – as the applicant, you are responsible for the content, clarity and style of the description. You may edit the project description before you accept the funding.
