The Call is directed to experts working in Finnish research institutions and focusing on any of the three FinCEAL Plus regions (Africa, Asia and/or the LAC region). 1-2 experts focusing on each region will be funded. Please note that this call is for researchers residing in Finland only, and only for this particular event. The maximum individual grant is 900€ and can be used to cover travel, accommodation, daily allowances and/or registration fees. Applicants from outside the metropolitan Helsinki area can receive an additional 100€ grant to cover their travel expenses within Finland.

Interested applicants should send a short description (no more than one page) detailing their interest in the event i.e why do you want to attend, what is the benefit of attending for you and your institution, how does the event relate to your work? Additionally, the application must explain how you expect your participation in the event to benefit your research cooperation with Africa/Asia/the LAC region. Applicants with a focus purely in European cooperation do not qualify for the grant. A CV or link to your profile should also be included. Preference is given to applicants especially interested in attending the policy or the policy-practice sessions, or applicants that have an active role in the event (such as paper presentation or similar). The deadline for the applications is Wednesday March 30th.

All Africa-related applications should be sent by email to Eva Kagiri, eva.m.kagiri[at]jyu.fi, Asia-related applications to Jarkko Mutanen, Jarkko.mutanen[at]uef.fi and LAC-related applications to Kajsa Ekroos, kajsa.ekroos[at]helsinki.fi
