Acquiring money(s) for the research

Once a month or so you have meeting with academics from different institutions who come together to ponder how they can acquire money for research (to hire a doc student) and which EU-program or Finnish Academy call is suitable for their research idea. Many of these meetings don’t lead to collaboration or funded research as all research funding nowadays is highly competitive. I was lucky on Friday to sit in a meeting where at least I felt we have a nice chance of getting funding. Lets see how the things evolve and if this leads to research funding. At least the topic data science skills (big data) is of importance at the moment.
