Council of Finnish Academies has four delegates. The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters, the Finnish Society of Science and Letters, the Finnish Academy of Technical Sciences, and the Swedish Academy of Engineering Science in Finland each nominate one delegate.
The council is appointed for a period of two years.
The four science academies in Finland are a part of the international system of science academies. Science academies represent independent and high quality research. Their membership is limited and new members are included by invitation, based on scientific merits.
Science academies promote autonomous research and scientific discourse by f.ex. organizing seminars, distributing grants and by producing evidence-based publications.
