Open Call

The Finnish Institute in Germany collects suggested topics for its academic programme once a year, in autumn, by means of an open call for proposals. The call is aimed at academics working in Finland and in German-speaking areas who are interested in developing a joint project.

Guest Researchers

Once a year, the Emil Öhmann Foundation awards a travel grant for a maximum stay of three months at the Finnish Institute in Berlin. The grant is aimed at academics from Finland who engage with the German language or with cultures in German-speaking Europe. The grant of 1,000 EUR per month will cover travel and accommodation expenses, as well as office space at the Finnish Institute. All researchers, including PhD candidates, who work at Finnish universities are eligible to apply. You will find further information in Finnish here >
