Reporting on Three-year Research Projects (a UH funding type)

Three-year grant is a University of Helsinki funding type, read more about the grant in Flamma.

The awarded three-year grant is conditional, and requires that the Board of the University allocates the necessary funding when it decides on the University’s target programme and the budget for those years. In addition, the University monitors the progress and impact of research projects through reports.

University of Helsinki three-year projects are reported to Tuhat (links below go to submission instructions):

  • Create the three-year project to Tuhat as a Project. For project type, please select "University of Helsinki Three-Year Research Project"
  • Add all project participants to Project.
  • Add relation from Project to other Tuhat content created with this funding. 

    You need to first create Publication, Impact and Actitivities records and then create relation from Project:

    • Create publications. Add relation from Project to Publications. 
    • Create impact. Describe the special significance of the three-year research grant for the project manager's progress of research and/or research career. Use impact category "Other impact". Set the visibility to "Confidential", which restricts this information to you and Tuhat administrators. Create relation from Project to Impact.
    • Create activities. Create relation from Project to activities.
  • You are done!
