FIRST networks

The FIRST programme builds on higher education institutions’ network collaboration. FIRST networks involve at least one institution from Finlandand another from Northwest Russia. Bigger networks are very welcome, too. The programme is open to all fields of education.

FIRST networks are always co-ordinated by a Finnish higher education institution, which submits a funding application to Finnish National Agency for Education (EDUFI) on behalf of the entire network. The co-ordinating institution is also responsible for the use of grants and will report to EDUFI after the agreement period.
