Tandem Industry Academia 2021 – apply by 25 April!
Funded by the Finnish Research Impact Foundation, Tandem Industry Academia (TIA) intends to support joint research projects between academic and industrial partners and to promote mobility across the academia-business interface. The TIA funding model has been developed by FRIF with a view to encouraging ambitious precompetitive projects that further the aims of both leading-edge academic research and business and industry.
The Finnish Research Impact Foundation invests more than two million euros to support academia-industry collaboration in 11 joint projects. Research brings new insights, for instance, into machine learning in pharmaceuticals development and emissions from dairy production.

What is the Foundation about?
Enhance the interaction between industrial and academic stakeholders
The Finnish Research Impact Foundation was created by the Finnish government in 2019 with a view to strengthening public-private partnerships and enhancing the interaction between industrial and academic stakeholders.
Funding for public-private partnership research projects
Ideally, research and industry will work closely in mutually beneficial joint projects where research helps businesses to develop new products and services for the future. At the same time, the joint effort towards novel solutions will generate new research questions.
Reinvigorate Finnish industry through world-class research
Ultimately the Foundation’s aim is to reinvigorate Finnish industry through world-class research. At the same time, these efforts will contribute to a stronger platform for Finland’s renewal and regeneration and the development of Finnish know-how.
