Research Visit Grants from the target regions to Finland

This new funding modality will provide funding for Finnish research institutions to invite partner researchers from Africa, Asia or the LAC region for short-term visit and thus promote science, technology and/or innovation cooperation between Finland and the target regions. The research cooperation must be related to one or more of the FinCEAL Plus regional thematic areas. The Grant is to be applied for by the hosting Finnish institution.The invited expert should be either a senior researcher (already has a PhD) or a senior staff member. The aim is to support visits that could accomplish a number of aims, but in particular, that of building new funding proposals. The grants can be used to cover travel, accommodation and daily allowances of the visiting researcher, but the salary should be covered either by the home or host institution. The accommodation and daily allowances of the visiting researcher can be covered for a maximum of one month by the FinCEAL Plus Grant. In the case of a longer visit, supplementary funding should be secured. FinCEAL Plus does not restrict the duration of the visit itself.
Eligible costs include travel, accommodation and daily allowances for the invited researcher for a maximum of one month. Salary costs are not eligible.

The Grants are issued through an Rolling Call open from March 1st, 2017 until further notice. Please note that as of 1st June, 2018, grants for Africa and LAC are no longer available. Asia-related grants will be closed on August 31st. More information on the Grants and how to apply
