Tampere University gets 14 new Academy of Finland-funded projects in social sciences
The Academy Project funding scheme is the most important funding instrument of the Research Council for Culture and Society for promoting the impact and renewal of research. In addition to the high scientific quality of the research plan, the Research Council pays special attention to projects that combine high quality with strong academic and societal impact and scientific renewal.
The Academy Project funding is used to hire a research team and for other research costs. The funding is granted to a Finnish university or research organisation that manages the use of funding on behalf of the Academy Project. Academy Project funding is awarded for a period of four years.
The Research Council for Culture and Society considers it important that Academy Projects involve researchers at different career stages. However, the focus is on promoting postdoctoral careers.
