Academy of Finland Application Pop-up Clinics

University Services presents pop-up clinics for researchers to assist with Academy of Finland application budgets in the Autumn call 2018.

Local service teams organize clinics where project accountants are available to help finding and filling the budget templates. HR services and research funding services will be available to answer questions as well.

It is best to go to your local clinic. However, when necessary you can go to other clinics as well. In that case remember to tell which unit you are applying for.

You can also contact your local project finance team directly. Contact information can be found here.

Budget templates and additional information available here.

Please remember that all budgets must be sent to financial services for checkup by Monday September 24th.

Welcome and good luck to all applicants!
