Welcome to the TIA Professor 2023 call’s info webinar on Monday 4 September at 9:30–11:00. In the event you will learn more about the Finnish Research Impact Foundation’s funding scheme for professors and you will have an opportunity to ask questions about the application process.
The purpose of TIA Professor funding is to support collaboration between industry and research organizations and to give professors first-hand knowledge about relevant areas of research interest for business companies. Projects may involve precompetitive research and other supportive activities.
TIA professors will receive funding for a one-year joint research project with an industry partner. During the funding term they will spend a period equivalent to one full year working in facilities provided by the business company. The funding may be spread out over a maximum of three years.
