Due to the success of the first call, funders in both Finland and Sweden have decided to continue the collaboration and open a second call, aiming once again to support early-career researchers.
The overall themes of the call are forest resources, wood-based value chains and wood construction. More specifically, the themes include the following areas:
forest biomass production
forest management planning
new methods and technologies
new sustainable products and processes
The funding altogether is approximately 4 million EUR (SEK 40 million). Finland and Sweden are jointly funding the call with equal amounts. Funders include the Academy of Finland, the Swedish Research Council Formas, the Kempe Foundations, the Wallenberg Foundations, the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry of Finland and the Ministry of the Environment of Finland. The call is again administrated by KSLA.
Researchers are cordially invited to apply jointly in the call. The project must build on, or lead to, an active collaboration between research groups at universities or research institutes in Finland and Sweden within any of the overall research themes.
Applications must be received by KSLA no later than 9th September 2019. The final decision will be made by each funder no later than December 2019.
