The Academy of Finland allocates funding on a competitive basis to the best researchers and research teams and to the most promising young researchers. Scientifically ambitious projects are a particular goal. We provide funding for all scientific disciplines.
Our principles for the allocation of funding are as follows:
- high quality
- international outlook and cooperation
- contribution to science renewal.
High-level international peer review is our key tool for identifying the best and most promising projects. Our four research councils, the Strategic Research Council, the Finnish Research Infrastructure Committee or subcommittees make the funding decisions based on the peer reviews.
