- personal electronic ID card.
Please note that Taike's online services are available in Finnish and in Swedish only.

Log in on the online services (in Swedish).
When logging in for the first time, the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page will open automatically. Fill in the requested information, after which it will be stored in Taike's customer register.
If you have used Taike's online services before, and your personal details have been stored in Taike's customer register, the homepage will open automatically after logging in. Before filling in any new applications, you should always check your current information under "Omat tiedot" (Personal details).
You can store two addresses in the customer register, one for Finland and one for a foreign residence, if necessary. The country of residence setting determines which one is used.
Include your preferred bank account number on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page and it will be stored in Taike's customer register, so every time you fill in a new application it will be included automatically.
If your bank details change, remember to update the information on the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page. This will not affect applications that have already been sent or processed. If you would like to change your bank details for applications that have been approved, for example for ongoing payments of artist grants or project grants, please contact Taike directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
The system does not yet accept foreign bank details, so if you have access only to a foreign bank account, please contact Taike directly: email@example.com
Grants are not paid to the accounts of associations, co-operatives, companies, foundations or other communities.
Separate bank account for specific application
You can also include separate bank details on each application. In this case, the bank details you provide on the application shall be used only for payments related to that specific application and will not affect the bank details stored in Taike's customer register and used for other payments.
Authorising someone to act on your behalf
As of 16 March 2020, it is possible to authorise another person to act on your behalf in matters concerning the Arts Promotion Centre Finland (Taike). Electronic authorisations can be obtained using the online Suomi.fi service, where you can also manage all your mandates. Before authorising someone to act on your behalf, read the instructions carefully on the Suomi.fi website.
Personal customers of Taike require only one mandate: Applying for subsidies and maintaining information. This mandate allows the assignee to prepare applications for discretionary government transfers and measures related to the transfers, submit them for processing, withdraw an application and maintain information related to the assignor on behalf of the assignor. Please note that you are responsible for keeping your mandates up to date.
On the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page you can see all current calls for applications.
Filling in a new application
Begin a new application from the "Avoimet haut" (Open calls for applications) page. Under "Matka-apurahat" (Travel grants) select "Tee uusi hakemus" (New application). Then select the language in which you prefer to apply (Finnish or Swedish). The default language is the same as the one that you used to log in with.
On the first page of the application you will see your personal details as stored in the customer register. If you would like to update your information, go to the "Omat tiedot" (Personal details) page. You can then return to the application from the "Omat hakemukset" (My applications) page under "Keskeneräiset" (Drafts).
Remember to save each page before you proceed to the next page.
When you send your application, it will be automatically saved on the "Omat hakemukset" (My applications) page under "Lähetetyt" (Sent).
The accepted file formats and maximum number of appendices are specified on the application form. The maximum size for each attachment is 4 Mb.

Applications that have been sent can still be amended as follows:
