The Academy of Finland’s Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering has granted funding for 67 Academy Projects. The projects include a total of 93 subprojects, and the total funding comes to around 41 million euros. Researchers at Tampere University received funding for thirteen projects or sub-projects.

Academy Project Funding is among the Research Council’s most important funding instruments for promoting the quality, impact and renewal of research. The Research Council aims to fund research in a wide range of fields within natural sciences and engineering and to take into account the special characteristics of each field.

In the funding decisions, the Research Council put particular emphasis on scientific quality, novelty, breakthrough potential and feasibility. Several of the funded projects will also make use of international infrastructures or research programmes in which Finland is a member. The funded projects promise extensive societal impact and many of them aim to produce partial solutions to challenges related to sustainable development.
