Academy Programmes

Academy Programmes are thematic, target-oriented and coordinated research programmes that cover a range of activities to support innovative, high-quality and high-impact research and promote international and national research cooperation.

Academy Programmes may have different focuses:

  • advancing emerging fields of research
  • supporting research related to societal challenges
  • promoting national and international funding cooperation
  • supporting Finnish researchers in seeking international collaborations and funding opportunities
  • influencing the contents of international funding calls, for example.

The topics of Academy Programmes are often science-driven and may emerge from key research needs in society identified through foresighting.

The Board of the Academy of Finland decides on the start-up and financial resources of new Academy Programmes. The funding is granted for a minimum of four years. There are 15 Academy Programmes running in 2021.
