Finnish Academy of Science and Letters together with The Institut Français, the Embassy of France in Finland, the French Ministry of Education, Higher Education and Research and the Finnish Society for Science launched a seed funding program during year 2017 to initiate and strengthen bilateral cooperation in science, innovation and higher education in fields of excellence in both countries.

Finnish Academy of Science and Letters takes part in ”French Renowned Scientist Conference” program. This program invites outstanding academics from France, from different disciplinary and research backgrounds, to participate in an open dialogue with their Finnish counterparts. The visit will include one major public lecture but also other discussions with researchers from Finnish Universities.

In addition to the public lecture, the French scholar’s participation in seminars, symposia or informal discussions are encouraged. It is expected that the visit will strengthen existing research partnerships and provide opportunities for building new research collaborations between scholars from France and from Finland.
