University of Oulu, 2016

Decisions on Academy Projects, Academy Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Researchers completed: 13 projects and 8 researchers were granted funding in the University of Oulu

The Academy of Finland has granted funding for new Academy Projects, Academy Research Fellows and Postdoctoral Researchers. 13 new Academy Projects, 7 Postdoctoral Researchers and 1 Academy Research Fellow in the University of Oulu were granted funding from 1 September 2020 onwards. Altogether, the researchers of the University of Oulu were granted over 10 million euros.

In the field of natural sciences and engineering the granted funding enables among others studies concentrating on virtual reality, artificial intelligence and the energy systems of the future. Research focusing on the control of wood formation in conifers will start as well.

In the field of biosciences and health, funding was granted for research topics on sudden cardiac death, fibrosis, autoimmunisation and immune system, among others.

In human sciences,  funded research topics include multispecies communities  and diverse relations of teacher´s work, among others.
