The aim of the Finnish Academy of Sciences, founded in 1908, is to promote scientific research and to act as a bond between those engaged in advanced research. It arranges meetings, discussions and educational events, and also produces scientific publications, issues comments on questions of research and researchers with regard to matters of current interest in society at large and makes proposals concerning science and those engaged in it. The Academy distributes some two million euros in grants every year, chiefly to young researchers.
