The Finnish Institute in the Middle East TelepART-Science funding programme helps early career researchers to travel and present their work internationally. It is a low-threshold micro-funding format aimed for Finland-based researchers travelling to the Middle East and North Africa.
TelepART funding is open for applications throughout the year and decisions are made within two weeks of a successfully submitted application. TelepART-funding can be applied for travel, accommodation, and conference/participation fees. The minimum amount that can be applied for is 100€ and the maximum amount is 1000€.
Run by the Finnish Cultural and Academic Institutes, the TelepART platform hopes to generate more research exchange opportunities between Finland and other countries.
TelepART funding promotes international movement of researchers in all fields of science. Grants will only be considered in cases where the applicant will have an active role, e.g., as a speaker with an accepted paper. Applicants must be able to demonstrate the relevance and value of the event for their ongoing research and career development.
The application will be evaluated by academic merit, significance of the funding for the applicant’s professional activities, the amount of funding applied for and the budget balance as well as the impact of the project on the quality and quantity of academic exchange between Finland and the specified country. In order to be eligible for the grant, both the researcher and the event organiser must have a preliminary commitment to the visit.
