Research councils


Since 1.1.2019, there are three research councils at the Academy of Finland: the Research Council for Biosciences, Health and the Environment, the Research Council for Culture and Society, and the Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering. See the research fields of the three research councils here.

The Finnish Government appoints a chair and a maximum of ten members for each research council for a three-year term. Care is taken to ensure that the research councils represent versatile scientific expertise of a high standard. Before appointing a research council, the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture hears universities, government research institutes, public authorities and corporate bodies representing research and development, as well as major scientific societies and science academies.
