Aalto University receives almost 5,7 million euros key project funding from the Academy of Finland

The funding is especially geared towards early-career researchers.

The Academy of Finland has decided to grant funding to 101 research projects under the key project funding scheme “Forging ahead with Research”. The funds for this scheme were allocated to the Academy of Finland through the Government Programme with a view to strengthening the quality and impact of research and promoting active collaboration with end-users and beneficiaries of research results. The funding, 30 million euros in total, is especially geared towards early-career researchers whose projects have been highly rated in previous peer reviews.
