BOFIT Visiting Researchers Programme

Funding organisation website


BOFIT Visiting Researchers scheme enables academics and researchers to spend a period of time (normally 4-6 weeks) conducting research at the Bank of Finland Institute for Economies in Transition (BOFIT) in Helsinki. BOFIT accepts applicants who can make a compelling case regarding how their presence and work will enhance BOFIT’s research profile and complement its research environment. The applicants should have properly worked-out, realizable research objectives to be pursued during their visit. Scholars focusing on the Russian or Chinese economy will be given priority. Joint projects as well as other possible interaction with regular BOFIT staff are highly appreciated. Applicants should be of post-doctoral status or at the final stages of their PhD studies.
