Suomen Akatemia (Academy of Finland)

The Academy of Finland funds high-quality scientific research, provides expertise in science and science policy, and strengthens the position of science and research in society. We work to contribute to the renewal, diversification and increasing internationalisation of Finnish research. We support and facilitate researcher training and research careers, internationalisation and the utilisation of research results. Our activities cover the full spectrum of scientific disciplines. In 2019, our funding for research amounts to 458 million euros. A portion of our funding comes from proceeds of Finland’s national gaming company Veikkaus. We are a government agency within the administrative branch of the Finnish Ministry of Education, Science and Culture.'
