Science academies

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.

The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters is a general scientific and academic society covering the full range of academic disciplines.
