New tools to support knowledge brokers and knowledge users

The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters has published new tools that help knowledge brokers find the right researchers, specify knowledge needs, and make phenomenon-based knowledge syntheses. The aim is to improve the use of research knowledge in societal decision-making.

For the benefit of science

For the good of society

The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters is a broad-based learned society founded in 1908 with the principal aim of promoting scientific research and acting as a bond between those engaged in advanced research.

The Academy invites academics and scientists who have distinguished themselves in their own fields to become members.

We arrange meetings, discussions and educational events. We also produce scientific publications and do issue comments on questions of research and researchers. We make proposals concerning science and those engaged in it, thus taking an active part in the long-term planning of science policy.

The Academy contributes over 2.5 million euros in grants and awards annually.
