In Aug/Sept 2017 SPARK Finland had an extra call for 3-4 projects. Eligible applicants were from Helsinki and Tampere regions – faculty, scientists, clinicians, students – from our affiliated institutions.
The call was closed in August 21st and our pool of 14 evaluators started their work. International evaluation panel consisted of professionals from different backgrounds and competence areas. Dr. Craig Garner, Dr. Tanja Rosenmund and MSc Abigail Garner from SPARK Berlin, and Dr. Morten Egeberg from UiO – Life Science (SPARK Oslo) brought extensive experience and international perspective to the selection process. Panel evaluated both written applications and oral presentations (September 14th) by eight applicants.
Selected projects will be announced soon and they will start in the program by the end of September 2017.
Next call will be open in Dec-17/Jan-18.
