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 to initiate and strengthen bilateral cooperation in science, innovation and higher education in fields of excellence in both countries.

French-Finnish Renowned Scientist Conference Series (FRSCS) 
This program invites outstanding academics from France or Finland, from different disciplinary and research backgrounds, to participate in an open dialogue with their counterparts.  The visit will include one major public lecture but also other discussions with researchers from selected Higher Education and Research Institutions.

Researchers Short Mobility program (RSM) 
In order to initiate or strengthen cooperation in science, innovation and higher education on all research topics of mutual interest, this program will allow selected researchers from France and from Finland (both ways) to visit their counterparts for a short period (1-2 weeks). The objectives of such visit are:
– To discuss potential concrete collaboration on research and, if possible, on higher education (mobility of students, dual degrees, joint PhD, EU applications for grants…)
– To meet with several researchers within the host institution to explore all possible other collaborations, also in a multidisciplinary approach
– To identify short, medium and long term perspectives of collaborations and official cooperation formalization in order to build a sustainable cooperation between research teams, research laboratory, departments and institutions.
