The Research Council funds research together with international partners to improve the opportunities of Finnish researchers to engage in high-quality research collaborations.
Key partners are the EU and the EU Member States with which the Research Council has funded ERA-NETs and other similar networks under Horizon 2020. In the Horizon Europe framework programme, the corresponding networks are referred to as Co-funded Partnerships.
We are also actively involved in financing Nordic research programmes coordinated by NordForsk. We also provide funding for researcher mobility together with a few sister organisations from non-European countries. We may also open joint calls with funders from individual countries.
