The Strategic Research Council (SRC) at the Academy of Finland has decided to invite 32 consortia to the second stage of the SRC programme call.
The call included three new programmes that attracted a total of 93 letters of intent.
The Keys to Sustainable Growth programme attracted 25 letters of intent, of which eight go through to the second stage. Among them is consortia From Social Disconnection Towards Sustainable Growth led by Prof. Anne Birgitta Pessi.
− Social disconnection is the need for reform that our project will focus on; current social and societal segregation leads to mistrust. There is an evident need for more nuanced understanding of the foundations of communality as well as better utilization of humans´ innate compassion, Pessi describes.
The SRC will make the final decisions on the projects to be included in the funding programmes in autumn 2017.
